Do you know who Pedro Infante was?
If 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.
His 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.
In the Pedro Infante Museum you will be able to appreciate a large collection of images, covers and personal items of the Mexican idol such as charro outfits and costumes that were used during their films, original posters, records and photographs of their childhood that were donated for his relatives.
The Pedro Infante Museum opens its doors from Monday to Saturday from 10:00 am – 7:00 pm and Sundays from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm. The visits are guided by the owners of the place who charge a recovery fee to keep the museum in optimal conditions.
The ‘Pearl of the Pacific’ is long tablecloths since in the last ceremony of the World Travel Awards Latin America 2019 held in the city of La Paz, Bolivia, for the second consecutive year the beautiful port of Mazatlan, Sinaloa was crowned as the Best Destination of Mexico and Central America, standing above destinations such as Acapulco, Cancun, Mexico City, Tijuana, Granada Nicaragua, Panama and San Jose Costa Rica.
