See the original home where Leon Trotsky lived in hiding and was eventually killed in 1940 at Museo Casa De Leon Trotsky. The site has transformed the home into a museum dedicated to the life of the Russian Marxist politician. Observe the house as it was at that time of his death, particularly the study in which Ramón Mercader brutally murdered him. Stroll through the outside garden overshadowed by watchtowers where Trotsky's tomb--containing his ashes and engraved with a hammer and sickle--lies.

  • This small museum located very close to a speedway and is a source of historical facts for those who'd like a quick but exhaustive reminders on Trotsky Life in a general worldwide context. Efforts have been clearly put to preserve the house and its amenities: great glance into Trotsky "private Life. The garden is well preserved and is the perfect place to enjoy a coffee. For 40 pesos (entrance fee), this museum is worth a visit! Don't forget to have a look at the drawing exhibition!
  • Not a lot of stuff is explained or written in English so it was hard to understand what was displayed. The outdoor courtyard was nice, tranquil, and relaxing. I could have been ok skipping this place. You have to pay extra if you want to take photos. Didn't see anyone enforcing that, but it is a strange rule.
