Ofrenda Altar Opens to Public: Free Community Day of the Dead Display

Bowers is proud to present free access to this community Ofrenda. Held in the Bowers Museum Historic Courtyard Annex, this altar is free to the public and access any time during museum hours, Tuesday-Sunday at 10 am - 4 pm October 15 - November 2.

Bring a photo or trinket for our ofrendas (memorial altar), honoring our loved ones and that special pet that left too soon.

The Mexican Days of the Dead are a very important holiday in the Mexican culture and the most important part of this holiday is the ofrenda. The word ofrenda means an offering. The ofrenda is an offering to a loved one who has passed on. Much care and love go into the building of this memorial altar. It is the belief that the spirit of the honored loved one will return on the night of November 2 to be with their families.
