Museum and You Exhibit

The Museums and You exhibit explores what museums are like in the 21st Century. Visitors can see historic Bernalillo Matachines headdresses, make their own, and try Matachines dancing for themselves!

The exhibit also explores what a community museum is. Visitors can draw a local map and build their own mini museum that can be put on display in our Museum of Museums, or taken home for display there!

The exhibit demonstrates that Bernalillo Community Museum is interactive and run by the community. Please get in touch if you have questions about joining one of the community exhibit teams or volunteering!

Below, Tracy Prairie demonstrates how to make your own headdress:
