Proposed New Mexic Arte Museum in Downtown Austin

Mexic-Arte Museum, the official Mexican and Mexican American Museum of Texas, is developing plans for a new 7-story (two underground) building to replace the current structure located at the southeast corner of Congress Avenue and E. 5th Street.

The renowned architect of Soumaya Museum in Mexico City came up with the design for the new project. Architect Fernando Romero is committed to build a striking structure that would "contribute to the quality of life for citizens of Austin and for generations to come".

The iconic design of the building is meant to be "a magnet for learning about the past, participating in the present and fostering a collective pride for the future." To learn more about this project you can visit the official website of Mexic-Arte museum or drop them an email at
