Muchos Méxicos explores Mexico’s rich history as a site of human innovation, creativity and cultural diversity. Featuring Mexican objects from the Peabody Museum collections, this bilingual exhibit tells the story of Mexico as a multicultural and geographic crossroads—one where the exchange of resources, products, and ideas among Indigenous peoples throughout the Americas before the Spanish invasion, and then with cultures around the globe—have all created a vibrant nation.

Con objetos mexicanos de las colecciones del Museo Peabody, esta exposición bilingüe cuenta la historia de México como encrucijada multicultural y geográfica, donde el intercambio de recursos, productos e ideas entre los pueblos indígenas de toda América antes de la invasión española, y luego con culturas alrededor del mundo, han creado una nación vibrante.
