There was a group of school children at the museum the day I was there, about middle school age. They were mostly Hispanic, and the art should have been relevant to them. But the teacher and/or museum staff did little to interpret the art. Some of the pieces represented struggle and discrimination, common themes at that age. Unless we do a better job engaging kids in art and it's meaning, it will not receive any importance in our schools. That's a pity. It seems kind of important to your mission. I'm not an artist at all, and I'm not Hispanic, but our world would be a lot uglier without art and music. You need to work on your school program.

The restaurant is great and I look forward to enjoying some of the future cultural events.

The National Hispanic Cultural Center, which has earned the attention of Frommer’s and Fodor’s, guides visitors on a journey through Hispanic culture with an art museum, library, and restaurant. The center’s art museum tantalizes eyes with a permanent collection full of work from traditional craftspeople and contemporary visionaries as well as exceptionally talented burros. Current exhibitions include A Room of Her Own: My Mother’s Altar, an installation created by Sandra Cisneros, acclaimed author of The House on Mango Street. Meanwhile, the center’s research library assembles 12,500 titles on Hispanic culture and history, and archives preserve documents in a haven more temperature-controlled than a refrigerator built out of air-conditioners. Exhibits offer glimpses into Hispanic life, such as the current Visas to Freedom, which recounts the valiant efforts of Spanish diplomats to save Jewish lives during the Holocaust.

Rumbling stomachs quiet at La Fonda del Bosque Restaurant, which teases taste buds with a menu of authentic Hispanic fare for breakfast and lunch. Early morning art admirers resist the urge to eat the masterpieces by filling up on chili-marinated pork, eggs, and hash browns ($9.50), and midday munchers nosh on a buffet Tuesday–Saturday ($10.75/person). Visitors also enjoy 20% off at La Tiendita, the National Hispanic Cultural Center’s gift shop, which will host a holiday shopping fair on Saturday, November 26.
