More than 100 artifacts, including instruments such as accordions, timbales, trumpets, and trombones; outfits from performers; posters and handbills from pivotal shows; handwritten lyrics for important recordings, as well as singles and albums.

Six Listening Kiosks that allow 2-3 visitors at a time to listen closely to key songs, with expert commentary identifying elements such as ethnic roots, rhythmic patterns, form, texture, instruments, vocal style, and lyrics.

Three Films made specifically for the exhibition that bring Latino music and dance to life. Each short film (6-8 minutes) features performance footage and filmed interviews with artists and experts, and the narratives examine key events in the history of post-World War II Latino music.
