Monumento y Museo de la Revolucion, Mexico City
(4.3/5 based on 750+ 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.

  • It is a monument that is located in an Esplanade and which allows us to observe the Majesty of respect towards their heroes of the Mexican Revolution. It is a good walk to culminate at this point.

  • This monument is located in a corner of the av reform and is awesome to see it in all its glory, above all at night since it has colored lights is very nice.

  • Loved the views of the city and the explanations at the top of each corner of the monument. You can go to the top without going to the museum, which is what I did.

  • 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
