Founded in 1975, the Mexican Museum houses a permanent collection of more than 14,000 art objects representing thousands of years of Mexican, Chicano and Latino art and culture. Exhibits range from pre-Hispanic and Colonial crafts to contemporary Mexican and Latino printmaking. The museum store, La Tienda, offers a terrific selection of crafty Mexican gifts, including ceramics, masks, jewelry, posters and books. Currently housed in Fort Mason, the museum is expected to move to a new state-of-the-art home in the Yerba Buena arts district by 2017.
