  • A completely renovated space, from its square, parking and access to dome that previously not you could climb. Recommended to visit and get to know part of the history of Mexico

  • The square where this museum is wonderful, very large, full of attractions, fairs, etc. There is an elevator that takes you to the top of the dome which has a really nice view of the city

  • Practically under the Monumento a la Revolucion you visit this small museum that traces the Mexican history from 1857 to 1920. Found it to be quite interesting but at the same time unclear, perhaps because of the lack of some more information; for foreigners not everything is discounted. You visit every day except Monday from 9 to 17 with MXN 25 input. If you have time.

  • Very impressive.. Buy the complete access ticket to walk under the monument foundition and through many hidden areas on the top
  • A truly impressive piece of architecture. The story behind the structure comes to life as you can take a tour throughout the internal structural sections of the building, letting you appreciate not only the history, but the ingenuity of construction.
  • Sadly, I didn't learn much about the revolution, but the building itself is so impressive! I enjoyed walking inside its walls, seeing massive structure and learning about it's story, how it loomed over the city for many decades before a huge effort was made to repair it and turn it into a modern cultural attraction. There are some steep steps on the way, but once you get to the top, the 360° view over the city is breathtaking, be prepared to snap a lot of pics!
  • The building was initially planned as the Federal Legislative Palace during the regime of Porfirio Díaz and "was intended as the unequaled monument to Porfirian glory." Considered the tallest triumphal arch in the world, it stands 67 metres. The Monument to the Revolution is a landmark and monument commemorating the Mexican Revolution. It is located in Plaza de la República, which crosses at the heart of the major thoroughfares Paseo de la Reforma and Avenida de los Insurgentes in downtown Mexico City.
  • DOV:19Aug2014 This is the monument build to commemorate Mexican revolution. Its a good place to visit and lot of pictures are provided related to the Mexican Revolution. Its said that you can view the full city by going into top of the monument but did not try the same as it costed high (Did not remember the cost now and may be revised now, Do check)
