Museo de las Americas
The Museo de las Americas educates our community about the diversity of Latino Americano art and culture from ancient to contemporary through innovative exhibitions and programs. With the Latino population growing exponentially in the Denver and wider communities, the Museo plays an important role in building pride in the Latino community's heritage and promoting understanding among cultures. Other history and art museums in Denver cannot focus on one segment of the community in a sustained or comprehensive manner. The Museo was organized to fill this important niche in the cultural milieu.
The Museo's location is close to shops, restaurants, and galleries along Santa Fe Drive in Denver. This area is rapidly becoming the commercial and cultural center of the Latino community. It is also near other arts and cultural organizations in Denver's Civic Center and only five blocks from the light rail line from Downtown.
