El Museo del Barrio has reopened with the exhibition "Taller Boricua: A Political Print Shop in New York;" an overview of the revolutionary Puerto Rican workshop founded in the 1970s. The production of print and archival materials from this organization, in many cases in collaboration with El Museo, is devoted to the political activism of NYC's Puerto Rican community. The exhibition at El Museo is comprehensive, engaging, and concise – perfect for bringing children along. Timed tickets for entry must be purchased ahead of time.
Across the street is the picturesque Conservatory Garden of New York City, a visual delight that will compliment your walk through El Museo and not to be missed. Next door to El Museo is the Museum of the City of New York where you can see photographs documenting the pandemic and recent protests. Timed tickets are recommended but not necessary. It is possible to purchase tickets on site.
It is possible to visit El Museo del Barrio, the Museum of the City of New York, and the soak in the beauty of the Conservatory Garden at a relaxing pace that will be fun for all. Quencha Nostra is a nearby restaurant option offering outdoor seating and reasonably priced Peruvian cuisine that is sure to compliment this day of discovery.
