I went there three weeks ago. My bf and his parents are from Mexico City,Mexico so they were excited to go. We were visiting Chicago from St.Louis.The people that were there were rude. They didn't even acknowledge us. They had no signs saying that photography was not allowed. One of their workers (a male) walked up to me in an exhibit and began lecturing me about taking photos in the exhibit. Though there were people taking pictures in the other exhibits that I visited. My bf mother came in and he said three words to her (in Spanish)about photos (no lecture). That same staff member followed us around the exhibit me especially. I felt violated. I will never return.

We took a day to explore this great neighborhood. Biked to the museum from Hyde Park then went milagros Tequesta. The museum is very nice. A beautiful slice on Mexico in Chicago.

A little bit of home far far away. The Mexican culture is widely spread across the Chicago people. Nice place to get to know more from your southern neighbors.

Wonderful, beautiful museum. It's free but more than worth a donation!

This is a great museum that is tucked away in Pilsen like a hidden treasure. If you're visiting Chicago it's a little bit of a trip out there, but their exhibitions are well executed a worth getting out to see. Hop on the Pink Line and it'll take you within 2 blocks on the museum - so easy! I loved their Day of the Dead exhibit last year and look forward to seeing what they'll do to celebrate it this year. Oh, and did I mention it's FREE?!

There's always something interesting at this smaller museum. I try to go at least once a year and have yet to be disappointed. It's a little hard to go with my small kids; they don't have anything by way of a kids' area or more kid friendly exhibit space.

Hands down one of my favorite Museums in the city. And it's free! All the time, every time! There may be special events or programs that charge, but the museum's permanent collection and two rotating rooms are always free to the public (open to donations of course). You can also rent the space their event space if you're looking for a swank venue. They also have a shop that sells pieces related to the art on exhibit. The history of the space is really great too, hope more people get to enjoy this museum like I do!

Amazing although small permanent collection. Extremely diverse use of materials as well as subject matter. Our personal favorite was an enormous piece made entirely of miniscule beads. The very definition of labor of love. The Worm was spectacular as well. Bonus: I am now a complete person thanks to the Mexican wrestler mask I scored at the gift.
