Explore the many ways to learn with us! El Museo del Barrio’s Education Programs offer people of all ages multiple entry points to El Museo’s mission and history, Permanent Collection, exhibitions, and cultural celebrations. We seek to foster a space for individual and collective sharing and understanding through inquiry and dialogue. Participants have the opportunity to consider the experiences of people from Puerto Rico, Latin America, the Caribbean and the United States in a meaningful way by learning about these regions’ diverse histories, cultures, and our relationships to them.
