If you have read about Frida Kahlo's life you probably know about Leon Trotsky. This little socialist red house is near the blue house and there are no Ines and costs just 70 peso to get in. I had already read the long storied history of this Soviet revolutionist, so I just did a walk thru seeing the machine gun bullet holes of the assassination attempt that didn't succeed and on to the office where he was assassinated with an ice ax to the head. He had sought asylum in Mexico from Stalin and lived with Frida and Diego for a couple of years before moving to this house. His tomb out in the garden features the Communist hammer & sickle symbol.

The Trotskys used the same clay plates and pots I used when I first came to live in Mexico. The kitchen is similar to the one I first had. It is so easy to imagine Lev and Natalia living here. Trotsky’s desk is as it was the day he was fatally attacked by a henchman of Stalin. You can still see the bullet holes made by an inept band of Stalinists lead by the painter Siquieiros in the wall of the couple’s bedroom, and see the bed under which their grandson Esteban hid during the attack. The most touching thing is the resting place of Lev’s and Natalia’s ashes in the garden under what may be the last red flag with the hammer and sickle on it that exists in the world.

About a 10 minute walk from the Kahlo Blue House and we walked straight in (70 pesos pp). It’s very atmospheric and you can wander through the house, guard house and gardens. Probably too many photos of the great man himself!

First of all, you need to read Leonardo Padura's novel: "The man who loved dogs". After reading it, visit Trotsky's house, that way you will imagine vividly the story. Its lost potential lies in that in this house they could do very interesting immersive experiences without damaging the property. The museum is dull, the house is hot.

This is the house that Trotsky lived in and worked after being exiled by the Stalin. He lived for quite a few years before he was asasinated here. Many of his personal items, books, photographs are here. Very interesting
