Monumento y Museo de la Revolucion, Mexico City

(4.4/5 based on 850+ 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.

  • Located in a plaza recently remodeled, a greater interest gives visitors, opposite is the remodeling also Fronton Mexico and its perimeter features a variety of good restaurants of meat... They are not very cheap, but they are very good... Now that if you walk into buenavista also find all kinds of economic and fast food stalls... The monument as such is beautiful and by its new panoramic elevator ride is extraordinary. Find a guide to learn more about its history.

  • 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
