All reviews his life bullet holes russian revolution trotsky's house assassination attempt soviet history few blocks guard house world history kahlo museum fascinating house communist party small museum fascinating insight interesting visit diego rivera interesting place
This is one of the most authentic museums I have been too. Informational signs are in Spanish and English. Well thought routing of tourists so folks aren't getting in each others way. Extremely educational and chilling.
The Trosky museum/home is not far from the Kahlo museum/home. The stories of these two people and their lifestyles are profoundly connected. Trotsky was a house guest at the Kahlo home and after an assassination attempt moved to his own dwelling. The museum is fascinating...More
This site is a complicated one: is it the final resting place of Trotsky?... a vestige of the halcyon days of Marxism?... an adjunct to a visit to the Kahlo museum?.... or some combination? Visit this before you visit the Kahlo museum a few blocks...More
Preserved just as it was at the time of the assassination, we thoroughly enjoyed the story behind the last few days of Leon Trotsky. His cold-blooded murder by Russia’s leader are eerily similar to murders taking place around the world today by ruthless dictators.
Leon Trotsky is one of the most important persons in history if you talk about the Stalin and Lenin time and the Communist party rising in Russia and the rest of the World. The story is about Trotsky's position in the competition between Lenin and...More
I had thought of visiting the nearby Frida Kahlo Blue House museum but the queue to get in was extremely long. Given I studied US - Soviet relations in high school history class I thought it may be interesting to see the house where Trotsky...More
Really interesting museum which is mostly Trotsky’s house where he moved after living at Frida Kahlo’s nearby residence. Easy to do both together in a morning and go together well with their shared history. Easy to get the feel of how he lived in constant...More
Most of the displays only have a description in Spanish and therefore it is difficult to understand without an audio guide (which is not available). Therefore. we were disappointed with this visit and there were hardly any other visitors there either
It is interesting to be in the place where Stalin's cronies, like the Mexican muralist Siqueiros, Stalin's flunky, and the Spaniard Mercader, a KGB operative, attempted and finally succeeded in killing Trotsky. Besides that, there's not much to learn from the poorly laid-out exhibition at...More
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.
