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.

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

It’s a small museum, so probably an hour. The guard house and Trotsky house are really interesting.
