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.

  • On our tour around the city we drove past here. Our tour guide explained the significance of the monument. A cool piece of history.  more »
  • A museum below the monument was good but no English translations. Mostly this museum celebrates their history.  more »
  • It is a very nice place. It was very quiet when getting dressed. 360 ° viewpoint is spectacular. Night view of modern buildings is very good. A good coffee and a quiet to enjoy the city

  • 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
