Museo Histórico Casa Gabriel González Videla - Museum La Serena - Chile

Videla and his family had once owned the house, but it now belongs to the city.The inside is filled with important historical documents detailing La Serena's long history, as well as artifacts surrounding Videla's political and personal life, including furniture, photographs and layouts of his architectural plan for La Serena.
