Orizaba

For the little ones of the house or those who are still children at heart, they cannot miss the opportunity to visit this enclosure dedicated to one of the most famous children of Orizaba; children’s song writer Francisco Gabilondo Soler, better known as “Cri cri”.

Inaugurated on May 12, 2017, the museum space is located within the facilities of the Poliforum Mier y Pesado (Calle Oriente 6), in its west wing. Childhood memories will come to life as you watch the models made in cardboard techniques, paper mache, clay, flexible paste or cold porcelain of the protagonists of the songs of the Grillito Cantor (Singing Cricket), as the singer-songwriter was also known.

In other rooms you can admire the instruments and some personal objects that belonged to Gabilondo Soler, as well as listen to a set of songs made up of 82 of his greatest hits. The last room is a multimedia space, by using tablets, the new generations will be able to know various stories and songs that “Cri cri” recorded on the XEW radio station.

You cannot miss a visit to the Alameda Francisco Gabilondo Soler (Poniente 3 and Norte 11). This is the largest zone of trees in the city, since in its little more than 47 thousand square meters (over 56000 sq. ft.), it houses different types of trees that provide fresh oxygen to walkers.

The most special part of this park is one of its gardens decorated with figures of Soler's most beloved characters, such as “Cri Cri”, La muñeca fea (The ugly doll) and “El Negrito Sandía”.
