The facility known as “Palace of Zambrano” was a property of the miner Juan José Zambrano, later it became the venue of the government of the state of Durango for more than 150 years. The Palace was given to the Cultural Institute of the State of Durango to house the Francisco Villa Museum and open to the people in February 14, 2013.

It has a beautiful baroque style façade with a wavy cornice and finishing in the rectangular windows; plus an arcade and its interior preserve murals from the history of Mexico and Durango made by don Francisco Montoya de la Cruz, Manuel Guillermo de Lourdes and José Luis Sandoval.

The precinct aims at reinterpreting the character, its context from the written and non-written memories; and rescue the art, literature, science and philosophy by creating a new experimental and experience space.
