    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?!

    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.

    Enjoyed, after many false starts I finally made it over to visit. While small and nondescript location that you can drive by like I did. The works are small compared to bigger locations. But you get a sense of struggle that show is their gallery. Lots of different art some makes you think some makes smile. I plan on coming again looking forward to what new things they bring

    This place was awesome! I loved the gallery -- very cool and unique! Quite a spacious atmosphere to the museum. There are plenty of foods to eat nearby -- mostly mexican. It is also near the Harrison Park (the museum is right down from the park). Also check out their glass display cases -- beautiful things are displayed as well. They also have a fantastic gift store inside too.
