Built on land purchased for business the home was built for his wife Señora doña Luz Corral and called "Quinta Luz". It is dedicated to the life and death of Mexican Revolutionary, Francisco "Pancho" Villa. Villa was taking a fairly standard visit to Parral, Mexico on July 20, 1923. However, he usually went accompanied by a number of bodyguards, and this... More

The house/museum is located about 1km from the central square of Chihuahua. Very interesting place with a good variety of memorabilia and information about the revolution. Well worth the walk to discover so much about Pancho Villa and his wife.

We were not expecting to visit this museum; Quinta Gameros was closed due to private party, ended up very happy with our alternative choice. Information is well-presented and interesting.

Enjoyed learning more about the revolution and Pancho Villa. Great artifacts including the car he was shot in. It gives you a great portrait of that time in history.

Pancho Villa is a Mexican icon in the revolution and this museum portraits not only his participation and assassination, but gives a lot of information of this historical period in Mexican history. The place is run by the army, and it is very well kept. Spotless clean, excellent maintenance. Less than a dollar to get in.

This is the house of famous Pancho Villa. Here you will learn a lot from Spanish or english guides who will show you many personal items from this Mexican revolutionary who is viewed like a thief or a hero depending on the person. The house was luxurious for the city standard of the time. With many fancy decorations and plenty... More

The last residence of one of Pancho Villa's 24 wives, and his home. An excellent collection of artifacts surrounding the life of Pancho Villa including the automobile he was driving when assassinated. Worth a visit

This was a really enjoyable museum for history buffs and those of us raised on early western movies. Pancho Villa was a revolutionary leader and a guerilla leader in the Mexican revolution. He has a folk hero status and lived in this lovely villa. Inside, in both English and Spainish signs, you will learn about this larger than life figure,... More

And I went to them all. Unbelievable value at 10 pesos and the English translations are often hysterical. One shows a photo of a group of women and says "this shows that women can be as dreadful as men". Another shows a picture of a Mexican woman bandelero armed to the teeth and comments that she was also good at... More
