The Mariposa Museum is a passport to the world for those who do not have the financial resources to travel beyond the borders of New England and therefore have little exposure to the diversity and beauty of the cultures of the world. It accomplishes its mission through educational programs, exhibitions, performances, and teacher workshops. When people better understand each other, respect will flourish and the world will know more peace.

I have personally seen the results of the museum's many arts education programs. Students who visit the museum experience cultures through exposure to folk art, stories, artifacts, music, etc.,
gain an appreciation of other cultures, learn not to fear people who are "different" and accept others without prejudice to skin color, culture or ethnicity
