Museo de América’s permanent exhibition halls give visitors the opportunity to trace the footsteps of American cultures and discover their unique responses to the universal challenges of humanity.
Through a magnificent collection of artefacts from the Pre-Columbian era (such as those from Peru and Mexico), the colonial period (Andean schools and those of the Viceroyalty of New Spain), and contemporary indigenous peoples (from the northwest coast of North America to the Amazon), and an anthropological discourse that advocates respect for all cultures, Museo de América gives visitors the opportunity to contemplate numerous objects, texts and images that have disseminated the realities and inventions of America for centuries. Discover how the continent’s peoples and cultures evolved over more than 12,000 years of history, and how their models of society were articulated. Learn about their contribution to the world of religion, and the instruments they used to communicate with one another.
The Museum has ramps to the building and a lift to the different floors of the permanent exhibition, as well as wheelchairs, on request.
The Museum of America has attention to hearing impairment through technological resources for hard of hearing people through the impetus of Orange Foundation and the collaboration of FEAM .
