The Costumes of the Americas Museum opened at its new location in September of 2022. The Museum is located at 1004 E. 6th Street in Brownsville. Visit and learn about the rich cultural history of Mexico, Central America, and South America through textiles on display. Rotating exhibits from a collection of over 600 costumes bring to life the stories of ancient cultures and artistic craftsmanship.

The Brownsville Historical Association presents ¡Fiesta y Cultura! Presenting over 20 textiles from the museum’s permanent collection and costume donations from local Brownsville residents, Fiesta y Cultura is an introduction to the traditional and culturally significant Charro Days celebration. Showcasing the region's cultural heritage, the exhibit uses historic photographs and textiles to transport visitors back in time and immerse them in the cultural experiences of the past. The inclusion of traditional regional costumes from various parts of Mexico, such as Michoacán, Oaxaca, Yucatán, and Chiapas, as well as the iconic China Poblana dress and Charro suit, offers a comprehensive representation of Mexico’s diverse cultural tapestry. Fiesta y Cultura is an opportunity to learn about the traditions, clothing, and celebrations cherished for years and continues to be a source of pride for the Brownsville community. The exhibition will be on display from January 9, 2024 - June 7, 2024
