Mexican Heritage Plaza
Mexican Heritage Plaza in San Jose
The Mexican Heritage Plaza is a museum and cultural center in San José, California, USA that opened in 1999. It is operated by the City of San Jose.

In addition to the La Galeria Museum, the plaza includes a 500-seat theater, gardens, classrooms, and meeting spaces.

The Mexican Heritage Plaza is a unique community and cultural arts facility located at the corner of Alum Rock and King in San José, in the heart of the area where Mexican Americans settled in San Jose in the mid-19th century. The site formerly housed a grocery store that was the target of one of the first boycotts for farm workers’ rights organized by César Chavez.

The Mexican Heritage Plaza is a 55,000 square-foot cultural center with state-of-the art theatrical venues, a Smithsonian-affliate gallery space and luscious thematic gardens that serve as a regional resource for cultural programming and education. Built in partnership with the City of San José and the San José Redevelopment Agency, the Plaza is one of the largest Latino cultural centers in the nation.

The Plaza features a theater, pavilion, art gallery, classroom space, and an outdoor square and gardens built in the architectural style of a traditional Mexican plaza. The Plaza hosts plays and other performances, art exhibits, community events, corporate meetings, weddings and quinceañeras, and more.
