Leon Trotsky Museum, Mexico City

(400+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
See the original home where Leon Trotsky lived in hiding and was eventually killed in 1940 at Leon Trotsky Museum. The site has transformed the home into a museum dedicated to the life of the Russian Marxist politician. Observe the house as it was at that time of his death, particularly the study in which Ramón Mercader brutally murdered him. Stroll through the outside garden overshadowed by watchtowers where Trotsky's tomb--containing his ashes and engraved with a hammer and sickle--lies.

  • Well preserved historic house turned fortress by Trotsky and his staff. Kinda small but worth it. Nice garden.
  • If you're near the Frida museum don't miss the chance to go to Trotsky museum. The place seems to conserve original items. However more information should be provided to those who don't know very much about Trotsky. life
  • Find a piece of Russia in the city. Although the home looks very rural you have to remember this house was built when the local area was only just a village. Research before you come so you can really appreciate what he was about and why this is his resting place.
  • V cool seeing Trotsky's house but really would have benefitted from having an English speaking guide walking us round the place. Reading plaques can only give you so much info. Entry was super cheap, 60 peso. The museum is TINY, can be seen, done and gone to the loo is less than 40min. Go if you're planning to go to Frida Kahlo's museum anyway, it's only a couple of blocks away.
  • Totally worth it. A small piece of 20th century history.
