The Museum is located inside Fiesta At North Star® building on the east wing of the second level (Elevator Available to Second Floor). The Museum is the culmination of our company’s work and service for the past 30+ years. We wanted to share a little bit of our experiences and unique art to all of San Antonio and the World.
All of the decorations and hand made art pieces are from our own private collection which we have spent more than 26 years collecting and curating. Some of the pieces are from Master Artists in Mexico or artist that have discontinued their work.
Our Dia De Muertos Exhibit is a sensory experience with light effects and pre-columbian music.
The permanent exhibit includes a video explanation of the tradition’s complex history. Access to our History Rooms and our Main Gallery where you can visit 13 unique and detailed ofrendas (altars) dedicated to different people.
Catrina, our virtual video guide, will explain Dia de Muertos’ complex history and how it is celebrated today. If you catch the live performance (check for availability for the day), you will get an emotional interpretation of “La Llorona” song and a brief explanation of how this famous folktale relates to Dia De Muertos. Finally, you will have an option of watching a “Discover Mexico” video that portrays Mexico’s beautiful heritage beyond Dia de Muertos.
All segments of the video presentations and live performances last up to 40 mins but you can skip any of them, as this is a self tour, or stay if you missed one.
