El Dia de Los Muertos, (The Day of the Dead) is all about Family, Love, Respect Tradition and Remembering those who have passed before us—keeping their stories and memories alive to pass on from generation to generation. This important cultural tradition has been celebrated for over 3000 years in Mexico, Central and South America and is a joyful celebration of life. The Muzeo is proud to host this customary tradition and we invite you to come honor the souls of the departed. A Community Table is setup where visitors can leave mementos of their loved one(s) and authentic ofrendas decorated by local artist with photos, candles, flowers, beads, and other memorial objects for visitors to enjoy.
