About Us

The Civil Association “Museo de Historia Puerto Vallarta”, in its purpose of providing our city with an enclosure to house its historical, artistic and cultural testimonies, invites you to participate in the noble social effort that will lead us to acquire a worthy and accessible building.

We conceive the House Museum of Puerto Vallarta as an open book in which our own and visitors can read the past of our community in its diverse stages; as well as appreciate its manifestations in the fields of art, culture, society and knowledge of the environment, among others.

We consider that our history, culture and idiosyncrasy are important features that distinguish us from other tourist centers, give us added value and that it is important to make them known.

The interest in the creation of this precinct was born out of the need to raise awareness among young people to preserve and learn about their history.

The Civil Society considers the need to act to create an enclosure where besides being a tourist and cultural attraction, could be the safeguard of treasures that otherwise would be lost in time and in inadequate places.

The Museum will be divided into specific areas:

Aztatlan and the vestiges of Ixtapa Jalisco
The founders and their families
Their mayors and a brief history of what was achieved in their administration
Luis Vallarta Ogazon Award and its winners
“The Night of the Iguana”, Filming and its Protagonists
Richard Burton and Liz Taylor’s Romance, Kimberley House
Families that have changed the course of Vallarta
Collections of 100 cameras
Collection of 5,000 postage stamps of Mexico, United States of America and Art
Collection of Mexican Coins
Art Gallery where a piece of each author from Vallarta or who has lived here will be exhibited
Area of Conferences and cultural talks
Graphic Library, with 1,200 National Geographic
From 1922 until now and 100 photography books
Souvenir Area and cafeteria
