National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture

The National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture (NMPRAC) is the only museum in the contiguous U.S. devoted to the promotion, integration and advancement of Puerto Rican arts and culture, presenting exhibitions and programming created to enhance the visibility and importance of the rich Puerto Rican arts tradition. The National Puerto Rican Museum serves as a cultural center for all people, including residents of Chicago and visitors from across the world; it connects diasporic arts, culture, and history to evolving generations. The key to the success and sustainability of arts and culture in Chicago is the creation of institutions that celebrate diverse cultural traditions and nurture their contributions to the arts and culture of our city. The NMPRAC does just this – preserving and expressing the vibrancy of Puerto Rican culture and celebrating the contributions of Puerto Ricans in the economic, artistic, cultural, educational, and social development of the City of Chicago and the nation.
The Museum is a proud member of the American Alliance of Museums, the Chicago Cultural Alliance, the Association of Midwest Museums and Museums in the Park.
