Día de los Muertos/Day of the Dead Commemoration

Día de los Muertos/Day of the Dead Commemoration

Presented by Harvard Museums of Science and Culture and David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies at Harvard University and Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology at Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology

Stop by the Peabody Museum for a short moment of personal reflection on the past year which brought losses to so many. The front steps of the museum will be set up as a simple outdoor altar and staff will distribute lighted candles to visitors in observance of those we have lost. Pause and remember as you place your candle in our community display. Post a Message of Love to our online Virtual Altar before attending. And join us next year when our annual fiesta returns to the Peabody galleries! Rain or shine.

Pase por el Museo Peabody para un breve momento de reflexión personal sobre el año anterior, que ha traído pérdidas para tantos. La escalinata del museo se convertirá en un sencillo altar al aire libre y el personal distribuirá velas encendidas a los visitantes en recuerdo de las personas que hemos perdido. Haga una pausa y recuerde mientras coloca su vela en nuestra exhibición comunitaria. Coloque un mensaje de amor en nuestro altar virtual en línea antes de asistir. Llueva o haga sol. ¡Y acompáñenos el próximo año cuando nuestra fiesta anual regrese a las galerías del Peabody!

Presented by the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology, the Harvard Museums of Science & Culture, the Consulate General of Mexico in Boston, and the Mexico Program at the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies, Harvard University.
