Smithsonian Latino Center
The Smithsonian Latino center is now a part of the National Museum of the American Latino. The new museum will be the cornerstone for visitors to learn how Latinos have contributed and continue to contribute to U.S. art, history, culture, and science.
The Smithsonian Institution established the Smithsonian Latino Center in 1997 to help unlock dynamic Latino stories and empower a greater understanding and deeper appreciation for Latinos' contributions to our country. The center provides financial resources and collaborates with Smithsonian museums, archives, and research centers to expand Latino scholarly research, exhibitions, collections, public programs, digital content, educational resources, and publications. The center has funded numerous positions for Latino curators, archivists, and curatorial assistants across the Institution.
