Located 5 min from Frida's museum and worth a visit. Very interesting story. We tried to free 30 min tour, and I personally found walking by myself more productive and interesting (but I do suggest reading about Trotsky online briefly before you visit to get some background info). Take note that there is an atmosphere of personality cult in this... More

The museum has done a great job preserving Trotsky's home and having an area where you can learn a lot about his life through photos. If the Frida Kahlo museum is packed, come here and pass some time -- it's usually empty and a few blocks away.

This is part of the Russian history and how far did Stalin go to eliminate his enemies. For those who read Russian history and about Trotsky this is a MUST visit place.

Fascinating house where Russian revolutionary Leon Trotsky lived, loved and was murdered in 1941. In his atmospheric office which is preserved just as it was on the day he died he has on his desk a book entitled Will Britain be Ready (for war with Germany). Trotsky is buried in the garden of the house which is situated in a... More

For history buffs and fans of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera a visit to their colleague's house is a worthwhile stop. The place is small, the re are tours or you can visit alone. Having grown up under the "Red Threat" it was fascinating to learn more about this man and his ideas.

We came to Coyoacan to visit Casa Azul (as everyone does I guess) and Leon Trotsky's house but we certainly did not expect what was hidden behind the high walls. We joined the free tour in Spanish and the young man leading it was very dedicated and knowledgeable. It was truly a history lesson brought to life but also an... More

This is a fabulous museum. We took the excellent 30 minute english tour which I really recommend. My husband and I, and our 2 boys aged 10 and 12, loved it. I knew nothingabout Trotsky prior to this tour. A highlight of our trip to Mexico! Do not miss!!

I went to the museum not expecting too much and came away blown away by the story, the man, and his legend... This is run by Leon Trotsky's grandson as a labor of love (he is now 91 years old) and it shows..

We visited Coyoacan for two reasons. One of them was to visit the Casa de Leon Trotsky. This is the place where he lived the last months of his life. It impressed me, as it has been kept exactly as it was while he lived there. This visit turned to be special and very meaningful because I had read the... More

Staying in Coyoacan

Neighborhood Profile
Coyoacan
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.
