José Alfredo Jiménez House & Museum
What would Mexican music be like without José Alfredo Jiménez? The famous Mexican singer and composer who was born in Dolores Hidalgo wrote more than 300 songs, among them the world-famous “El Rey” (The King).
The José Alfredo Jiménez House & Museum is located within the mansion where the composer spent his childhood. The rooms tell the story of the artist’s life, with objects such as rusty tricycles, trophies, photos, charro (traditional Mexican horse riders) outfits and telegrams. You will also find a mural by Octavio Ocampo, which depicts José Alfredo with performers such as Lola Beltrán and Chavela Vargas.
