Learn more about this joyful holiday, a national symbol of Mexico shared with the world. The annual tradition of building ofrendas—altars with photos, favorite foods, and memorabilia of the departed—encourages visits by the souls, and is an occasion to honor and celebrate the lives of the departed. Enjoy three floors of activities for the young and young-at-heart including crafts, scent stations, traditional decorations, Nahuatl stories, decorating a sugar skull (extra $7 fee), painting demonstrations, folk dances and two live music performances. Outside the museum, visitors can purchase Mexican hot chocolate, café de olla, pan de muerto (sweet bread), and tamales from Jose’s Torta Mexicana. Mexican food trucks Tenoch and North East of the Border will also offer delicious tortas and tacos for sale.

Event activities are free with regular museum admission. Sugar skulls extra ($7 each). Free parking at the 52 Oxford Street Garage

Presented by the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology and Harvard Museums of Science & Culture in collaboration with the Consulate General of Mexico in Boston and the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies, Harvard University
