1852 W. 19th St., Chicago, IL , United States

It’s only fitting that Chicago—home to the second-largest Mexican population in the United States—would have a world-class museum dedicated to Latino arts. Located just west of the bustling 18th Street corridor in the colorful Pilsen neighborhood, the museum represents a crash course on the story of the Mexican experience: from indigenous Mayan and Aztec cultures through the colonial period, the Mexican revolution, and 20th-century equality movements. Entry is free all year long.
