The interest in the creation of the Casamuseo PuertoVallarta was born out of the need to raise awareness in young people, to preserve and make known the history of Puerto Vallarta.
Eager to create culture, in 1993 a Civil Association was formed under the name of Pro Biblioteca de Vallarta, of which he (Arturo Pasos) signed as Founding President. Today after 28 years and wishing that the vestiges of our History be kept in a place it is necessary to create the “casamuseo puertovallarta”, where the graphic testimonies of the recent history of our City and its formation will be housed.
For several triennia the Cultural and Political Authority has been asked for the creation of this need, but there has been no response whatsoever. For this reason, the civil society realized the need to create an enclosure where besides being a tourist and cultural attraction, it will be the shelter of treasures that otherwise will be lost in time and in inadequate places.
