I went to check out this exhibit today, and it was well done. They have lots of hand written letters that really tell the stories of those who suffered. There are 3 exhibits every year, new each time. It definitely tells the story from the...More

The Museo de las Americas is a little museum on Santa Fe Drive. It is mainly temporary displays, so how much you like it any time you visit will depend largely on what's there now. I did enjoy the small gift shop as well as...More

I enjoyed the exhibit of Jerry De La Cruz's work…and as usual, it was well laid out, presenting an insight into the development of the artist's considerable skills.

The Jerry de la Cruz is well worth trip and then some. The cost is very reasonable and the current exhibit is inspiring. Had a wonderful time looking at the exhibit.

The Jerry de la Cruz exhibit currently showing at the Museo de las Americas is exceptionally good. The breadth and quality of his work is remarkable, and it is well worth a visit. I would certainly recommend this show, but the size of the museum...More

I am glad someone warned me about how small this is. I would go again, but first I would check carefully to see if the exhibit really interested me. I had hoped that there would be more to see from the permanent collection.
