Mexican Museum – At Fort Mason

One of the best hot spots in the city happens to be the old army post at Fort Mason. This place alone is great with the Off the Grid food truck events on Friday nights, a Sunday farmers market and dozens of special events throughout the year. But beyond all that is a hive of businesses, theaters and museums located within the refurbished military buildings.

I recently spotted a great little gem of a museum, and you too can peruse the revolving collection of art at the Mexican Museum located in Building D.

It was a pleasant surprise to discover a free museum featuring some excellent examples from their 14,000 permanent piece collection. Items shown include pre-Hispanic, colonial, popular, modern and contemporary Mexican art as well as Chicano and Latino art.

This Smithsonian-associated museum has rotating exhibits and even offers Spanish language classes one day per week.

The museum is free and open to the public, but you are encouraged to make a small donation, and perhaps you may even want to purchase a membership to help support the arts.
