SCHOOL VISITS AND TOURS

The Museo is a wonderful educational experience for any child. Betty Aragon herself conducts a tour of the site, explaining the way Mexican-American families lived as far back as the 1920's. She explains the neighborhood's history, how the houses themselves were constructed (in the summer, kids even get to make their own adobe bricks!), and how food was kept and prepared before refrigerators existed!

Touring the Museo provides insights into their family life and culture, as well as the work the Museo and Betty herself continues to do on behalf of the Latino community.

Tours and School Visits are free.
The Museo is open to the public the third Saturday of every month from 12:30 to 3PM. To schedule a school visit, contact Betty Aragon: blaragon@msn.com
