REVIEW

The National Sound Library is located at Alvarado House, a legendary eighteenth-century building, with Moorish and Andalusian influences.

It was declared a historical monument on April 27, 1932, this important building of more than 300 years old,is home of this new institution meant to spread the sound heritage of Mexico.

The colonial mansion, home of the poet Octavio Paz in the last stage of his life, fulfilled different functions in the second half of the twentieth century: library of the Secretariat of Finance and Public Credit, bookstore of the Ministry of Education, Headquarters of the Encyclopedia of Mexico, Bureau of Statistics and Octavio Paz Foundation.

On August 4, 2004 the Ministry of Civil Service gave (as a bailment) the Alvarado House to the National Council for Culture and the Arts, to be the headquarters of the National Sound Library, whose main objective is to keep the sound memory of the country.

The House of Sounds of Mexico opened its doors on December 10, 2008, to preserve the sound heritage of our country.
