Aurora History Museum, 15051 E Alameda Pkwy
Aurora, CO The 80012 United States

The Aurora History Museum celebrates Aurora’s Salvadoran population with a new exhibition, “A Mosaic of Cultures: Aurora’s Salvadoran Community.” This exhibit educates the public about the Salvadorans living in Aurora as well as highlights individuals, businesses owners, and their cultural traditions and history.

Aurora is home to over 3,000 Salvadorans, constituting the third-largest foreign-born population living here. This unique community tremendously impacts the cultural fabric of our city. The Salvadorans who call Aurora home come from all walks of life and each has their own story of immigration or growing up here in the United States. Many traditions and values were carried to Colorado and continue to be passed on to new generations. Several characteristics of this culture are present throughout the city. This exhibit explores these characteristics, such as popular music, art, dance, religion, and popular foods.
