Trip Planner: Mexico / Central Mexico and Gulf Coast / Mexico City / Monumento y Museo de la Revolucion
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 museum below offers nice exhibits on the history and construction of the monument. On top, the monument offers beautiful views over the city and a great breeze on a hot day. Highly recommended. more »
Impressive monument and plaza area. Within walking distance from zocalo and downtown CDMX. Also, some of the best views from up top. more »
Awesome place... Keep track if there are any public events happening here.... I was fortunate to see a Mexican traditional dance performance once here... The museum in the ground floor and the view from the top are really nice.... Best time to visit is during the late evening to enjoy the cool open breeze followed by night lights on the Monument...
Great historical place going back to the 1900’s when president Porfirio Díaz issued a French architect to build the new federal government palace. The construction stopped because of the Mexican revolution and 20 years later it became the Monument to the Mexican Revolution. Take the hole tour to the top of the monument, great view of Mexico City. Be prepared to go through narrow spaces and to clime steps. The service provided and the facilities are great.
