Monumento y Museo de la Revolucion, Mexico City

4.4
A grandiose, art deco-like structure, Monumento y Museo de la Revolucion attracts visitors each year with its blend of Mexican history, European-influenced architecture, and far-reaching views of the surrounding city. Frenchman Emile Bernard won the rights to design the structure in 1897, but it took until 1938 to finish construction. Standing an impressive 67 m (227 ft) in height, the monument looks almost modern despite its long history. A brass-like red roof adds color to the structure, whilst artistic pieces complement the surrounding area.

  • Monument at Reforma near Revolution Square and the underground Museum. Good Vantage lookout tower in an elevator so you get to the area. Al DESCO architectural style, so is the decoration of the apex movie Batman ish feeling. Be seen the ruins of the Aztec era underground Museum of revolution history itself, I too was not drawn interest, but it is below the current ground, to land in Mexico City a multi-layered was really intrigued.

  • It should be a very historic building - be sure to know a guide book to the Geschiochte of the building. With the elevator to go up is a must.

  • The area of the monument to the revolution is surrounded by Union (rats), hotels, Jai Alai (abandoned), good restaurants, cafes and offices. You can calmly get to 5 in the afternoon and see nightfall in this place, you can go to the Museum which is located in the monument, and even go up to the dome. There are sources which you can distract a few minutes, more than anything to see children playing in them. I do not recommend that you walk to the part of the Avenida Ribera de San Cosme, since it is very obscure and is between ugly, better to Insurgentes Avenue or reform.

  • This is a must go location in Mexico city. The best time to go is after sunset. They have water fountains, so be careful, because you might get wet. I love colorful lights during the night time.
  • Breathtaking view from above. It's definitely worth the climb up all those flights of stairs. Do watchout and be careful going up the stairs as some of the glass barriers don't feel quite as sturdy. Once I got to the top, it was hard for me to leave as it was quite a fantastic view and was quiet. I recommend going very early to beat any potential crowd. Probably want to take a jacket just in case..depending on what time of the year you go.
  • The best thing we have done so far in Mexico City. Beautiful views. Well laid out tour system. Beautiful monument and great history. Get the pass to the top. Worth it. Caution: lots of stairs, narrow passages. Do not do if afraid of heights. Pro tip - there is a small inexpensive cafe up top... Enjoy a coffee and the view
  • Beautiful Monument. Emblematic and monumental. In my opinion the best designed public space in the city.
  • A piece of history, a little coffee at the top, and an awesome view of my city, there's no need of more.

Where to stay in Mexico City

Head straight to the trendy neighborhoods of Roma or La Condesa if you're looking for an artsy atmosphere--you can find design-conscious hostels and boutique hotels nestled among the many bars, restaurants, cafes, and galleries. For easy access to the city's most beautiful architecture, you can't beat staying in the historical center, although the neighborhood's UNESCO-listing means you'll only find smaller, old-fashioned options there. You can also indulge in a few luxury nights in the fancy Polanco district, or look for a more budget-friendly option in the popular Zona Rosa.
