This is a stunning art deco momument and seemingly very popular with locals and tourists alike. We paid to go up the incongruous glass lift. You then climb up inside the dome to the top so you can get a close-up view of the internal structure. You're then you're rewarded with great views at the top. Note rucksacks and large... More

A museum below the monument was good but no English translations. Mostly this museum celebrates their history.

Going to the top involves a fast glass elevator which can be intimidating if you are afraid of heights. Also after the elevator you have a walkway that is also very intimidating as it is somewhat open. If you are brave you can enjoy a gorgeous view of the city and the inside of the structure. You can also enjoy... More

but we did visit and enjoyed the 'Museo de la Revolution' as you can see from the following photographs. Good well laid out small museum with a mass of information in English. Small but adequate lift for those with a mobility problem,well worth a visit.

This monument also has a small museum and a viewpoint. It is very fascinating to visit it at night. The ticket is unexpensive

At first glance, from afar, this monument is unassuming, but once you are there you are dwarfed by it enourmity. I happen to visit during a protest and the space around the monument was littered with trash and people. Once inside, I enjoyed the museum that was air conditioned and quiet. After a nice stroll, I had a quick snack... More

It was well past sundown when we got here but the buzz around the place and the decently lit structure gave a warm feel.

Not a must in my opinion , you can just see it from a distance. They blitzed a glass elevator to access the top of the building , great view of reforma and the city.

The site is full of Mexico' pre and post Revolution history. It features a "mirador" (lookout) where one can have a pretty good sight of the city. For the brave of heart, they offer a trip on the inner structure that goes all the way to the top with a guide who describes the history of the Monument. A very... More
