Monumento y Museo de la Revolucion, Mexico City

(4.3/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • In the middle of this big city, you will find this great location. At night it looks even better. Great to have a walk around with friends. 
  • un lugar muy bello, para tomar fotografías, conocer un poco mas de la historia de la revolución mexicana 
  • El lugar es um lugar estratégico, lo que no me gustó, es que cobran por separado el ascenso y el museo, ya que subir a la cima es sólo um minuto y no hay mucho que hacer allí. Las vistas son estupenda...  more »

  • Nice place and the view on the top is awesome. Not expensive and quite interesting
  • Un lugar histórico insigne y hermoso.
  • Awesome place. Great views. Cheap Price. Friendly Staff. Green lighting at night made it look like something out of Wizard of Oz. The telescopes aren't any good, but it's cool to hang out up there and look around at the city.
  • Great place to visit when there's clear weather. You can actually go up the monument for a fee. You can also get a tour of both the upper and underground areas of the monument. There's a coffee shop both at the top and at the bottom, as well as a cafeteria at "ground level".
  • Monumento obligado como turista y como mexicano
