Casa de la Cultura in Tijuana is one of Mexico’s buildings that has been declared a site of historical heritage.
Originally designed as an elementary school (modeled after one in Yuma, Arizona), today it is a place of learning. In 1975, the building became the first cultural site in Tijuana. In 2014, it was named a cultural heritage site of the state.
It includes a theater, the Josefa Ortiz de Dominguez library, the Benjamin Serrano Gallery, a Literary Cafe, and plenty of rooms for workshops and exhibitions. Past workshops have included dance, hip hop, language, green cuisine, and more.
Casa de la Cultura brings an average of 25,000 visitors per year. In 2018, Casa de la Cultura became one of the first centers in the city to have a program supported by the National Institute of Fine Arts in Mexico.
