In its new home, designed by TEN Arquitectos,  the museum will showcase its permanent collection of more than 15,000 pieces, surrounded by a three-story art/facade by Mexican-based artist Jan Hendrix.

Additionally, this new complex features two double-height galleries, an amphitheater, education center, restaurant and museum store.

The Mexican Museum will become a cultural, educational and a social center for the enjoyment and promotion of Mexican and Mexican-American art and culture in the cultural heart of San Francisco.
