Now open at the National Museum of American History, the Molina Family Latino Gallery tells U.S. history from the perspectives of the diverse Latinas and Latinos who lived it. The 4,500-sq. ft. gallery is the Smithsonian's first museum space dedicated to the Latino experience on the National Mall. The Molina Family Latino Gallery is a precursor to the National Museum of the American Latino and foreshadows what a Latino Museum could embody.
The gallery's inaugural exhibition, "¡Presente! a Latino History of the United States," uncovers hidden and forgotten stories, connects visitors to Latino culture, and lays the foundation for understanding how Latinas and Latinos inform and shape U.S. history.
