Museo Francisco Villa

Museum in Durango

Housed in a spectacular colonial mansion, this well-conceived museum pays deep homage to the Mexican revolutionary hero Pancho Villa. Sixteen rooms worth of multimedia displays, films and personal effects tell the story of Durango's most famous native son. Be sure to leave some time to check out the gorgeous murals, which depict the history of the country and state. Signage is in English, Spanish and even braille.
