4.3/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • Close the socket the monument is a revolution, which has a paradoxical name due to the source that initially had construction. The square is very well maintained and in its surroundings you can find good bars and restaurant.

  • The monument is replete with symbology of the Mexican Revolution. Imposing and intriguing architecture. Good place to shoot your trip.

  • It is beautiful and very well planned... the place is beautiful and the surrounding area also. At night it is more spectacular, although they close so early. I recommend visiting it at a time where the Sun already is is hiding that they admire the sunset and appreciate the lights and color sources.

  • 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.
  • Monumento obligado como turista y como mexicano
  • 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".
  • They give you a three diferent tours but the best is the one where they take you to the bottom of the monument and then let you climb the stairs for one of the sides until you get to the top, they show you how it was built and how the antieartqueake structure works
