What is Hispanic Heritage Month?
American Latino Museum
The Latino community has been an important part of America since before the founding of our great nation. American Latinos are veterans, artists, athletes, business leaders- active participants in every walk of life. The Latino story is the American story: one of family, patriotism, hard work, and pride in the country we've all built together. This American story can only be trusted to one of the greatest research and cultural centers in the world——the Smithsonian museums on the National Mall. The national record of who we are, where we've come from, and what it means to be an American belong in our most important cultural institutions.

Smithsonian Latino Center
The Smithsonian Latino Center was created in 1997 to promote Latino presence within the Smithsonian. The Center is not represented in one physical location; rather, it works collaboratively with the Institution's museums and research centers, ensuring that the contributions of the Latino community in the arts, history, national culture and scientific achievement are explored, presented, celebrated and preserved. We support scholarly research, exhibitions, public and educational programs, web-based content and virtual platforms, and collections and archives. We also manage leadership and professional development programs for Latino youth, emerging scholars and museum professionals.
