The Mexican Museum, home to Latino art, culture and heritage, has unveiled plans to move to a new location in San Francisco, having made its final addition to its architectural design team.

The museum is to move from the Fort Mason Centre into a new venue to be created in San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Gardens arts district, in partnership with a mixed-use facility scheme developed by Millennium Partners.

The developer has already put its stamp on the Yerba Buena area with projects that include a retail centre, an urban park called Jessie Square and a hotel and residential tower run by Four Seasons.

Architecture + Design and Pfau Long Architecture will manage the design of the museum’s cultural component to be housed in the first four floors of the new 706 Mission Street Residential Tower, as well as designing the museum’s new home which is to be located in the historic Aronson Building.

The architects will work alongside Handel Architects, which is in charge of work at both sites, while also working with TEN Arquitectos which will develop the schematic design of the museum space.

Once completed, the Mexican Museum will house over 14,000 objects of American, Mexican American and Latino art, including many treasures never before exhibited to the general public.

“The new facility at Yerba Buena Gardens will provide the much-needed space for the numerous galleries envisioned, all of which will support the narrative of our permanent collection and allow for travelling exhibits from the United States, Mexico and Latin America,” said Andrew M. Kluger, Chair of The Mexican Museum Board of Trustees.

The new attraction will become a neighbour to a number of other heritage facilities and museums located nearby, with the new museum being close to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Cartoon Art Museum, the Museum of Craft and Folk Art, the Museum of the African Diaspora and the Contemporary Jewish Museum.
