El Museo del Barrio—located on Fifth Avenue’s Museum Mile—specializes in Puerto Rican, Caribbean and Latin American art, the only museum in New York City with these Latino cultures at its core. In addition to its extensive fine arts collection, El Museo hosts a series of cultural festivities, youth and educational programming and literary discussions. Celebrating its 40th anniversary, El Museo has undergone an award-winning redesign, framing the museum with a sparkling glass facade and a spacious new courtyard, introducing modernized galleries to house the museum’s temporary and permanent collections, and adding an expanded shop and Pan-Latin café.

About El Museo del Barrio: El Museo del Barrio—located on Fifth Avenue's Museum Mile in East Harlem—specializes in Puerto Rican, Caribbean and Latin American art, the only museum in New York City with these cultures at its core. While you're in the neighborhood: If you're in the mood to visit a restaurant whose menu features nearly every imaginable traditional Italian dish, simply walk north on Fifth Avenue until you reach Gran Piatto d'Oro. The typical flavors of El Barrio (Spanish Harlem), though, are Latin ones—and they can be found throughout the area.
