It is in this house that one of the greatest poets, writers and journalists of Mexico, Veracruz native Salvador Diaz Miron, lived until his death in 1928.
In 1981, the building was purchased by the City of Veracruz and totally renovated. It opened its doors as a museum in 1982.
The museum exhibits various documents, furniture and personal belongings of the poet.
The ground floor has a large space used for temporary art exhibitions and an auditorium used by the Literary Forum, an institution that promotes and disseminates the literary, artistic and cultural development of the independent artists of the city.
Upstairs there are six bedrooms, a multipurpose room, Diaz Miron’s office and a display case that showcases his china.
Today, besides being a museum it is the headquarter of the Municipal School of Theatre under the cultural direction of City Hall. Hours: Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Closed on Sundays. Admission is free.
