What people are saying:

The museum is located in Plaza de Armas de La Serena and corresponds to the former residence of Don Gabriel González Videla, the former Chilean president. It is a very complete museum , Which contains parts of different stages in our country’s history; unfortunately, the last earthquake affected the area and the building was damaged and needs to be rebuilt. It has not happened so far. You must continue to wait. Regret for our cultural heritage. You can only see the mobile samples in the showroom next to the house. The entry is released.

    A Typical Historical Museum

    A small entrance fee is required to see the exhibits. The museum was originally the home of a Chilean President Gabriel Videla who helped draft the country's constitution.

    Best with a guide

    We toured this museum with a guide and it was well worth it. The museum is relatively small but it is free to wonder around.

    Interesting

    This home of a past president doesn't hold much in historical significance, but it is free. Photos of La Serena in the past, an old home, and clothing of the era were worth a walk through.
