Dia de los Muertos Celebration
We are celebrating Dia de los Muertos at the Augusta Museum of History this October. This beautiful Mexican holiday dates back thousands of years and traditionally takes place on November 1st & 2nd.
During this celebrated time, families come together to honor their past relatives by creating ofrendas, or altars, that are adorned with food, drinks, flowers, vibrant décor, personal items of relatives, photos and more.
The Asociación Hispanoaméricano del CSRA will be here to set up a community ofrenda in our museum rotunda that will be free to view October 26th-29th. If you would like to bring in a photograph of a loved one to be included in our community ofrenda please do so before October 24th. (Photographs should be framed and if you want your photo back please put your name, email and phone number on the back of the frame.)
On Sunday, October 29th we will fun-filled day at the museum celebrating Dia de los Muertos. We will make marigold crowns and paper masks in the Garden City Room, there will be a showing of the film Coco at 2pm in our History Theater (free with regular museum admission, children 6 and under are free) and more!
Make plans to join us for Dia de los Muertos at the AMH!
