Monumento y Museo de la Revolucion, Mexico City

4.4
#10 of 115 in Museums in Mexico City
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.

  • Excellent interactive museum where they show you the bowels and as the monument was reconstructed, internal museums will transport you in time, take the full tour, worth the climb to the top with the excellent explanations. Children will adore this ride!!

  • 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.
  • Interesting and touristic place, you can visit the museum, the observation deck and summit. It is necessary to pay by separate, the line for the panoramic elevator, observatory and summit is outside, if you only want to visit the museum, the entrance is inside.
  • If you speak Spanish, pay extra and take the guided tour. The tour goes through the interior of the monument and is a great presentation on the history of the revolution.
  • 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
