Monumento y Museo de la Revolucion, Mexico City

4.5
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.

  • Monument, museum and Esplanade!!! Each one with history and attraction, being able to visit this museum is something in truth unique, the Revolution of a country with a thousand special features in history, a revolution without real changes and if many illusions, a history of battles and heroes!!!

  • He Knew of his remodeling and reopening as a museum, but it is really impressive to be able to visit this place, where you can explore his bowels or see the majestic steel structure. I Think it is a missed tour, an instant classic of the CDMX and surely almost unique in the world.

  • Lovely landmark. The space in front is usually filled with people skating or just enjoying the view. After the sunset, it is illuminated with color lights that make it look really beautiful. There is also a fountain based on the ground, which is lively illuminated at night too and allows kids to play among the water streams. The open space is often used for concerts or cultural events. If you are in the city, it is defo a must, since it is close to downtown. There are also some nice posh restaurants with terrace to enjoy the view around the area.
  • Their complete tour (90pesos)was just so much fun! Best observation deck I have ever visited. There are quite few staircase to climb up and down. If you have knee issues etc, should consult at ticket office first. Also if you are acrophobia, be aware!
