Permanent Exhibition

The exhibits open with the dramatic geographical contrasts within this region, explored on a large touchscreen display. The story continues with humans’ first arrivals and the subsequent development of its early complex civilizations. An interactive screen locates and explores some of the area’s exciting archaeological sites. The exhibits continue with a brief history of the colonization of Latin America and the Caribbean, the introduction of slaves, and struggles for independence. Visitors then explore the distinct ecosystems, and unique and colorful biodiversity of the region. Finally, Latin America today is examined through its natural resources, economies, educational systems, and religions. Exhibits on Latin American Arts use objects and touchscreens to introduce the visitor to the rich contributions of Latin Americans to the world’s art, folk arts, music, literature, architecture, and film.
