Museum of the Revolution or La Quinta Luz:
it was founded by Luz Corral, the widow of General Francisco Pancho Villa, who inhabited the museum until her death in 1981.
Its halls exhibit an important collection of photographs and documents of the revolutionary deed, as well as the weapons and personal clothes of the famous Pancho Villa, known as the Centaur of the North. Perhaps the most renowned object is the Dodge automobile in which the revolutionary was assassinated in 1923, when he was riding along the City of Hidalgo del Parral.
The museum has the old and ample two-storey big house that was the home of the famous chief and his wife as its seat. The house has a central patio and a backyard that worked as Pancho Villa's headquarters during the revolution.
