Looking Ahead: Exhibitions Opening in 2020

If you’ve been one of the 130,000 visitors to the MAH this past year you’ve experienced dynamic exhibitions exploring the stories of local seniors, the vibrant recreation of a beloved local mural, the rich history of Santa Cruz County’s vanished Chinatowns, and the preservation of community space by Latinx gardeners.
