Day of the Dead / Día de los muertos is a traditional Mexican holiday that galvanizes individuals, family, friends and community to celebrate life by reflecting on history and culture through the act of honoring those that have passed away. You and your family are invited to enjoy a day of art making, music, dance, and ritual as the museum comes to life with the spirit and traditions of Day of the Dead.
