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.

  • After taking an Uber 30+ minutes from the other side of town, we got here to visit the museum and it was CLOSED about 2 hours before they were supposed to. The hours on their website were wrong...

  • To spend some time trying to know the past and to understand the present of such beautiful country this is MUST you have to visit. Information and historical facts are pretty well explained in the artefacts in display. You can also go to the top of this beautiful monument and have a 360 sight of Mexico city. Hold tight your belongings whole you are climbing to the top, or better yet, leave any backpack in the wardrobe to avoid loose in the very narrow stairs. Enjoy.
  • This was a really cool monument. Going up to the top was partly done by elevator and partly done by stairs. The stairs part does get a bit tight. As you're going up, there are placards in Spanish and English that explain the history and making of the monument. Highly recommend! I actually enjoyed this more than going to the top of the Eiffel Tower.
