Smithsonian Latino Center

The Smithsonian Latino Center serves as the corazón (heart) of Latinidad at the Smithsonian. Through its exhibits, initiatives and programs, it unlocks the dynamic Latino stories that shape national experience and identity in the U.S. In preserving and presenting these stories, the center empowers a greater understanding and deeper appreciation for the enduring contributions of Latinos to the country in a way that celebrates Latino presence in American history and culture and convenes inclusive conversations about the stories that continue to inspire generations to come.
