Monumento y Museo de la Revolucion, Mexico City

(900+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • 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
  • If you visit the monument the best advice I can give is tu purchase the full tour, by doing that you will be able to go thorugh the secrete passages of the monument and get a panoramic view of the city.
  • Extremely well organized and presented, this monument provides a history of the eras it has witnessed to complement the history of the construction itself. And it's hard to beat the view. I didn't expect this site to be as alluring and satisfying as it is.
  • And amazing monument that doubles as the resting place for some of the most iconic figures in Mexican history. The full tour is cheap and allows you to walk under the site, through the pillars and all the way to the top of the dome which lets you see this masterpiece from ever possible angle.
  • Beautiful historical monument. It has a small museum right at the center, underground. On the outside, it's perfect for a walk. Open space. Surrounded by cafés and restaurants. Some trendy, some hipster. Always a good experience.
