There's an exhibit about the Young Lords Party, from 1969-75 - three different exhibits actually, one of them here, one in the Bronx, one in the Lower East Side/Loisada. Events are happening in conjunction, including historical walking tours of East Harlem.

You might want to call the museum on that one. The cafe is sometimes open when the museum isn't and it is not attached that way. It might be but check with the museum.

Allow about an hour to tour the museum. It is quite small. Don't miss the Central Park Conservatory and The Museum of the City of New York which are both right next door.
