Create an itinerary including Museo Casa De Leon Trotsky
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. Make Museo Casa De Leon Trotsky a centerpiece of your Mexico City vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Mexico City journey builder tool.

  • We were early for our Frida Khalo museum tickets so walked the two blocks to see the Trotsky museum. From the street it looks very utilitarian. Buy your tickets and walk into a photo exhibit...

  • Very cool little museum. The small biographical exhibits were informative, and the house itself is in great shape, and there were so few people there that we felt like we had the whole house to ourselves. If you’re interested in Trotsky at all, this place is a must-see.
  • Quiet on a Tuesday morning. Entrance fee of 80$ included a guide in English - he really knew his stuff and brought the house to life. Highly recommend.
