Do you know who Pedro Infante was?

Pedro InfanteIf you are a big fan or just heard this name, we recommend you to take a tour by the Pedro Infante Museum that will make you take a trip to the past and know details of one of the most beloved Mexican idols of the golden age of Mexico.

Pedro Infante was an interpreter specialized in Mexican regional music who recorded more than 300 songs that continue to enjoy great popularity. His acting career began in 1943 whose naturalness and sympathy earned him the recognition of the public and in a very short time he became the heartthrob and favorite singer of national cinema.

Pedro Infante Museum in MazatlanHis work in films such as Soy charro de Rancho Grande, Nosotros los pobres, Los tres huastecos, Tizoc and Ustedes los ricos are part of an uninterrupted series of films that as an absolute protagonist were created solely for his personal and musical show.

With international fame and hundreds of awards, Pedro Infante dies in a tragic air crash in Merida, Yucatan on April 15, 1957, leaving after his death a legacy of successes and talent impossible to match.

Located on 1108 Constitution St., in the Historic Center of Mazatlan, the Pedro Infante Museum has a historical value in the port since it was precisely in that house where the Mexican film actor and singer was born in 1917.
