The National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture

The National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture
Chicago, United States

Founded in 2000 by members of Chicago’s Puerto Rican community in Humboldt Park and local supporters of arts and culture, National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts & Culture (NMPRAC) serves as a one-of-a-kind institution that celebrates the best of Puerto Rico’s identity and heritage. The early years of the museum centered on renovating the historic Humboldt Park Stables and Receptory, an iconic building that has been culturally and historically significant to Chicago since the late 1800s. After more than 20 years of not inducting any new museums in the park, NMPRAC made recent history and was named the latest City of Chicago’s Museums in the Park in February 2012. In 2014, the name of the museum was changed to reflect our status as the only museum in the country dedicated exclusively to Puerto Rican arts and culture.
