Historical Museum of the Mexican Revolution, Chihuahua

4.7
The Historical Museum of the Mexican Revolution in the Mexican city of Chihuahua, Chih., is housed in the former estate of General Francisco Villa and his widow, Sra. María Luz Corral de Villa. The house and its extensive collection of Villa memorabilia, as well as souvenirs and documents relating to other revolutionary leaders, was turned over to the Mexican government in 1981 upon the death of Mrs. Villa.

One may see the saddles of the 'Centaur of the North', as Villa was styled, as well as his pistols and armory, bedroom, living quarters and photographic memorabilia relating to his activities during the Mexican Revolution. The centerpiece of the collection in the courtyard is the bullet-ridden Dodge automobile in which he and his bodyguards were assassinated in 1923 in the city of Hidalgo del Parral in southern Chihuahua. He is said to be buried in the Monumento a la Revolución in Mexico City.

  • As in any historical site, it is interesting to know where relevant events of our history were developed. This was one of the houses of Pancho Villa, in fact the one that lived until his death his first wife. The museum is run by members of the military and photographs are not allowed except in courtyards and hallways. The cost is very affordable, $10.00 and if you are a member of the FBI (Basic Forces of INAPAM) or accounts with student credential there is still discount.

  • Amazing, the whole acquis is wonderful, the documents and furniture are original, there are few replicas. the military personnel guarding the museum are extremely cultured and friendly. The facilities are spotless and very well maintained. There are many rooms, but the time goes very fast, since each of them is very interesting and impressive. I would visit him again several more times.

  • Sobering history of the great General Francisco "Pancho" Villa
  • For the price you pay it really is worth the time. It has a second floor with more descriptive history on every artifact and image.
