Bring LA Plaza to your neighborhood

LA Plaza’s mobile education programs are designed to provide accessible, equitable, and culturally relevant learning opportunities directly to our local communities. We bring the museum to you! 

Mobile programs interweave conversations, demonstrations, read-alongs, and tactile explorations with hands-on workshops that are rooted in history, art, culture, nutrition, and bilingual literacy. Workshops create an open reciprocal learning environment where students, families, and our educators exchange intergenerational narratives and family histories.
