The best attractions in Pilsen
You don't have to look any further than Pilsen to find one of the largest Latino cultural organizations in the U.S. Visit the National Museum of Meixcan Art and explore a 6,000-piece permanent collection, rotating exhibits, performing arts showcases and educational programming that represents an illustrious Mexican culture.
Located right next to the National Museum of Mexican Art, this park features a field house with a gymnastics center, indoor swimming pool and a computer lab. The nearly 18 acres of space include tennis courts, basketball courts, baseball fields, athletic fields for football or soccer, a playground and community garden.
In the East Pilsen Industrial Corridor, CUAS is an emerging mixed-use art space that facilitates "creative juxtapositions." This cultural institution presents work by contemporary artists, promotes projects and hosts events by creative-sector groups—everything from pop-up dinners to the Pilsen Flea Market to Slow and Low, a community lowrider festival.
