37th Annual Mexic-Arte Celebration: 9/18 – 11/22
Since 1984 when the Museum presented its first Day of the Dead exhibition, La Muerte Vive (Death Lives), this exhibition pays tribute to the tradition that celebrates the return of the dead by their families and friends on October 31 to November 2.  

While you’re out at an event, make sure to stop by one of these local spots to practice your Spanish skills!

La Casita is great for lunch & dinner in North Austin. They also have mariachis on the weekends for brunch!

Cheko’s on 2222/Koenig is a great choice for breakfast classics. It’s a cozy spot so get there before the morning crowd!

In South Austin, we recommend La Mexicana. They have great authentic Mexican baked goods & breakfast, lunch or dinner.
