The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Coyoacán
Once you step into Coyoacán (“Land of the Coyotes”) you'll find picturesque parks and cantinas that will transport you back to the colonial era thanks to the brick and stone details of the area. Iconic writers such as Trotsky and great painters like Frida Kahlo seeked refuge and inspiration in this area, and you can see the unique spirit of this neighborhood reflected in its colorful market where nieves, sopes and all kinds of traditional 'antojitos' are a must try. Restaurants and cafés throughout its peaceful paved streets contain traditional but unique murals and decorations, where one can enjoy a mezcal at noon or the best churros with a cup of coffee.

It was a mix of interesting and macabre to visit the house where Trotsky was murdered and read about his family being decimated in different parts of the world too.
Historically and culturally, this visit was very enriching, but I left with a heavy heart.

Small but interesting
This house-turned-museum is only three blocks from Frida Kahlo’s house-turned-museum and only costs a few American dollars.
There is a one room rotating art gallery here, alongside the entire house that has become a museum.
The interpretative panels along the self guided walking tour are in Spanish and passable English.
The very large interpretive panel explaining Trotsky's influence and the course of the Russian / Soviet Revolution across the 1900s was only available in Spanish, but seemed fairly comprehensive.

It's a worthwhile stop if you are in Coyoacan!

Very very interesting place if you are interested in world history! One of those “you have to visit”-places!

The exhibit is super simple and easy to understand!

It takes 30-45 minutes, if you don’t visit the nice cafe (which you should).

Perfect stop before Friday Kahlos house

The museum is in the house where Tratsky lived in exile, and where he was assassinated by agents of Josef Stalin, after escaping earlier attempts. The museum provides a really great time line of the Bolsheviks' and Tratsky's history with broad context of contemporaneous world events. It helps to know something about Trotsky beforehand, but it's not essential. The living quarters are preserved and described, including the room and desk where he suffered the fatal attack that took his life. We visited on something of a whim, and were really glad we included it in our itinerary.

My wife and I visited this museum on August 12, 2023. Very cool but haunting. Be sure to buy something from the nice man at the cafeteria.

Interesting history about the life of Trotsky and how a struggles. The museum is also the place where he lived when he was in Mexico. Definitely come here to check it out it’s nearby the Frida Kahlo museum.

Definitely worth a visit! The museum displays lots of photos of Trotsky’s time in Mexico, gives the chronology of his expulsion from the CPSU and the USSR, explains the persecution of his entire family, and documents his reception in Mexico. Then you see the house he lived in – simple, but with a large yard for his garden and chickens and rabbits. And a separate guardhouse for his security detail, which obviously was insufficient to keep him from being assassinated.

Contrary to the Frida Kahlo Museum there was no waiting time or a need for making a reservation days ahead. Very interesting and detailed information about the turbulent life of Trotzky. Inspired me to even dig further into his life and political views. Do not miss it

Great as an additional stop if in the area to see the Frida Kahlo museum. Not many of the signs are in English so recommend purchasing the English guide book about 200 pesos in the gift shop which contains a really comprehensive intro/ background to the museum visit. Beautiful house and courtyard to wander around. Visit only takes about 40 minutes.
