CHIHUAHUA

MUSEUMS

Regional Museum of Chihuahua: interesting objects from the Paquimé Culture are on exhibition in its rooms, the same that were found in the archaeological zone of Casas Grandes; along with paintings and sculptures made by local artists and a valuable collection of art nouveau suites; objects and artistic jewels that adorn every corner of the so-called Quinta de Gameros, an edifice built between 1907 and 1910.
The beautiful suites property of the Requena family are on the first floor of the house, whilst the upper floor houses objects and paintings from the XIX century of the Fox collection, and works from the most outstanding artists of Chihuahua; the archaeological objects of Paquimé are exhibited in the basement. Beyond its artistic treasures, the seat of the museum, which belonged to Manuel Gameros, a wealthy miner of the region who could not occupy it for too long due to the beginning of the Mexican Revolution, is an architectonic beauty in itself. Later the building would have multiple uses, until 1968, when it became property of the University of Chihuahua.

Useful Information of Chihuahua
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.
Address: 3014 Decima Street, on the crossing with Mendez Street, City of Chihuahua Working hours: everyday from 9:00 hours till 13:00 hours and from 15:00 hours till 19:00 hours.

Museum of Sacred Art: it was inaugurated in 1980 to show the entire world the valuable samples of Mexican religious art from the XVIII century. The first room is dedicated to the angels, whilst the second one houses an important collection of paintings with Catholic motifs of great relevance and artistic interest, such as the canvases of the Immaculate Conception by renowned painter Miguel Cabrera and that of San Francisco de Kotska by Francisco Martinez.
The rooms are complemented with a library and a bookshop, ambiences located inside the Metropolitan Cathedral, a superb building of baroque style raised based on pink quarry rock between the XVIII and XIX centuries.

Juarez House Museum: the old house where President Benito Juarez lived during his short stay in Chihuahua, was turned into a museum on October the 12th of 1972 with the intention of exhibiting invaluable manuscripts, photographs and other belongings of the leader, besides suites from the period that recreate the ambience in which the illustrious character, who came to these lands for the purpose of organising the fight against the French invaders who had taken the country, lived.
Nowadays this corner of history bears the name of Juarez House Museum of the Republican Loyalty.
