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 to the Revolution: I liked it very much, the tour inside the monument, is very good!!, and the sunrises /sunsets must be much better. good signage, good guide to the edecans, there's no way you'll miss out. It has an extraordinary architecture. Note: Not recommended for people suffering from vertigo or altitude sickness. It is necessary to climb the elevator and enjoy an incredible panoramic view of the whole city. Peeero! it should be noted that the descent is made by the interior of the monument by many stairs that sometimes become very narrow. Really! worth a lot worth visiting, it's recommended

  • Initially considered as the space intended to house the Senate of the Republic, an unfinished project. With this premise one can access the space of the current Monument of the Revolution, now also museum. Within the Museumgrafia you can find precisely the details and purposes of its construction, very interesting objects about the Mexican Revolution. Visiting hours are from 12:00-20:00 hrs and Friday 12:00 to 22:00 hrs. One of the attractions of this monument is the viewpoint, where you can appreciate an incredible view of the city center. Access to the viewpoint, and the museum has various cost packages, I would prefer to omit the cost for possible variations but goes from 70 to 400 pesos on average. Inside the monument there is a café/shop, very nice place.

  • 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.
