Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations at Bristol Museum: Sunday 30th October


On Sunday 30th October Bristol Museum will be holding its annual Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations – the Mexican festival where families gather to remember their dead.

There will be lots of activities for children and grown-ups to enjoy such as colourful Day of the Dead crafts, face painting, plus traditional Mexican dancing to watch.



They can also learn about the traditional Día de los Muertos celebrations, take part in a puppet show and visit the beautiful ‘Adela Breton: Ancient Mexico in Colour’ exhibition on the Second Floor gallery at the museum.

Children and adults will also be able to add their photos and memories of their loved ones to the colourful ofrenda (shrine) at the museum.


The event will be from 10am – 5pm and no booking is required, just drop in whenever you wish. It is a free event – just ‘pay what you think’.

You can find Bristol Museum on Queens Road, BS8 1RL.
