Event Details

Celebrate Día de los Muertos by creating your own nicho! Nichos are small, decorative boxes that commemorate the lives of our ancestors. We make them for Día de Los Muertos to show our ancestors we still remember and honor them. Join us online or at the museum to build your own! Spots for in-person crafting at the Arizona History Museum and Arizona Heritage Center are limited! Kits are $5 per participant and do not include museum admission. Families are welcome to join. Children under 16 must be accompanied by a parent.
