Join the Museum for its next virtual Roots event on Thursday, May 13 from 4:00-4:30 p.m.! Throughout the year, we honor the artistic and scientific contributions of different cultures that comprise the unique community of San Diego County. We are thrilled to celebrate Portuguese culture with a FREE virtual event filled with fun for the entire family. Tune in live on the Museum’s Facebook page to enjoy a classic Portuguese folktale performance, a tour of the Portuguese Historical Center, cooking demonstration and language lesson!
This virtual event will be hosted on the Museum's Facebook page. On the day of the event, check our page for the Roots: Portugal video and give us a follow to be notified when we go live.
