Francisco Villa Museum

Durango

If you're wondering what to do in Durango, another must-see includes the building known as the Zambrano Palace, which served as the state government's headquarters for over 150 years. However, it's housed a museum dedicated to the revolutionary hero, Pancho Villa, for quite some time.

The baroque building safeguards the military leader's -whose birth name was Doroteo Arango- manuscripts and memorabilia. It also houses archery articles and murals painted by artists such as Francisco Montoya, from Durango, and Texcoco-native, Manuel Guillermo de Lourdes. Remember to visit its interactive spaces and watch the videos they show.

A stroll through the exhibits contained within the Museo de Sitio del Palacio de Zambrano, the Museo de Sitio Sala del Congreso, the Sala de Exposiciones Temporales and the Sala de Gobernadores will take you back in time and enhance not only your historical knowledge as it regards the capital of Durango, but Mexico in general.
