Mexicanidad: Our Past Is Present

April 28, 2000 – March 18, 2014

This Landmark exhibition is the first permanent display of its magnitude to showcase the development of the Mexican culture as it unfolded over three thousand years ago in Ancient America and up to the present. The Museum’s permanent collection pieces in Mexicanidad are continually rotated in and out of the exhibition. This permanent exhibition inaugurated the Museum expansion in the Mexican Fine Arts Center Museum’s Velasquez Gallery.
