The Visitor Center, built around the renovated wood-frame building where Cesar worked from 1971 to 1993, utilizes diverse communications media, including films and exhibits, to educate people about Cesar’s life, work, and values and his philosophy and methods of nonviolent conflict-reconciliation and social change.

Highlights include:

Cesar's Office
Guided by two unforgettable audiovisual narratives (a touching story of how a grandchild remembers her grandfather, and a moving account of how Cesar’s innovation and determination inspired and touched the lives of many), visitors are able to view Cesar’s office just as he left it.

A theater that screens documentary films on Cesar.

Visitors are able to view exhibits relating to the mission of the Cesar E. Chavez Foundation. Visitors may even find their work in this space in the future! Please contact the center to find out how your group can participate.
