Day of the Dead Commemoration

Register for our November 1st Day of the Dead Commemoration for a short moment of personal reflection on the past year which brought losses to so many. The front steps of the museum will be set up as a simple outdoor altar and staff will distribute lighted candles to visitors in observance of those we have lost.
