    Dreams of a Sunday afternoon in the Centro Histórico!
    Excellent! My wife and I visited on August 13, 2023. Getting there was a pleasant Sunday walk down Avenida Juárez from our hotel, Histórico Central, on Bolívar. Juárez and Paseo de la Reforma were closed to cars so there were cyclists, walkers, runners, and dogs everywhere. We passed Bellas Artes, the Alameda, the Hemiciclo a Benito Juárez, vendors, and young people practicing their dance moves. Upon reaching the Monumento we encountered a gathering of CDMX-based Buffalo Bills' fans. I'm from Buffalo and a long-suffering Bills' fan. We then entered the Monumento, went downstairs to the foundation, then via elevator to the top. After the elevator there are a fair number of stairs to the actual top so be prepared. But it's worth it because the view is amazing. We stopped for drinks & snacks at the café at the top but there was no shade and the sun was blazing. After we went back downstairs we discovered the Café Adelita, which was cool and cool, so we had more drinks & snacks. The gift shop is nice. There are clean rest rooms. We didn't visit the museum itself because of lack of time and energy.

    Grand monument
    The monument is a few minutes away from our hotel. It was the first attraction we went while we were in the city. It is a large structure with nothing around it. While we were there, it was protected by steel fence due to protest. It was a shame as we were not able to go to the top.

    Don’t go over the white line !!!
    The collection was really great and the explanations were very readable, even for a secondary Spanish speaker. The staff was ridiculously over the top about not standing over the white line. Most displays were of written documents which could not be read at a distance and were protected by glass or plastic. Constantly yelling at you to move back detracted from the experience,

    A Historical Tower with Observation Deck
    Another great place to view the city. You’ll walk down a ramp, take some stairs down to the underground museum, ride an elevator to the observation deck, and climb some more stairs. All while learning a little bit of the Mexican history. Great city views once you get to the top observatory deck area. The historic part of this experience was also great. Once back on the street level, look carefully at the outdoor pillars that hold this structure. Each one holds the remains of an important Mexican historical figure including Pancho Villa. They have a small coffee shop at the top deck and a larger one on the first floor. No need for advanced ticket purchase. We purchased our tickets here.

After taking an Uber 30+ minutes from the other side of town, we got here to visit the museum and it was CLOSED about 2 hours before they were supposed to. The hours on their website were wrong, apparently. The very RUDE girl at the front counter told us that's not their fault, and we should have called first.
We wasted even MORE money and time on another Uber to leave.

This is one of the attractions in Mexico City that is open on Mondays. They close at 8pm, so this can be the last item on a daily tour. Go there in the late afternoon, before sunset.

The museum is under the tower, in the basement, and it is easy to get claustrophobic in some of the narrow passages. One may just go straight to the elevator. There is a small food stand on the observation deck. Grab something there, take a seat, and watch the beautiful sunset over Mexico City.

The revolutionary museum was well done and fun. Tickets can easily be purchased on the spot - 150 pesos for adults and 130 pesos for children 12 and under. Backpacks must be checked in at lockers with no fee. While in the line, the line leads you below and above the ground level. Many signs (only in Spanish) provide lots of information about the construction of the monument and other facts. Lots of places for cool pictures. Pictures can also be take individually in a green room with tickets - the pictures are taken really fast but turn out well. Group pictures are taken also and cute props are provided. Line was reasonable. Elevator ride was not long and enjoyable. Once at the top good views (ok pics) and a cafe. I actually thought the views from Chapultepec castle were better. From there, you can walk up 130 steps to get to the very top. Steps are spiral and not too bad. Cool view of infrastructure of the dome while walking up the steps. From the very top nice views of the city layout and aerial view. Walking down the steps is a different route to avoid traffic. Pictures can be purchased when back below. Overall, nice pictures and experience but kinda pricey for what it is.

Upon arriving at the drop off location, I took the opportunity to go to the Monument to the Revolution. It was an interesting attraction, starting in the basement, then going all the way to the top of the monument where you gain a great view of Mexico City. After the elevator, there will be several stairs that you will need to climb up to in order to get to the top, and of course the stairs down again. The admission was 120 pesos.

Beautiful and massive structure set one short block from La Paseo Reforma and near my hotel Le Meridien. In a large oval “plaza” with many great restaurants nearby. Went on pride March day so lots is spirited people adding to the festive feel. Good to see in afternoon daylight before having delicious dinner nearby. Then walk by at night when it is lit up in all its glory

This monument not only is visually impressive but has a fascinating history behind it.

Starting underneath the monument the tour takes you via a lift to the top where a further staircase can take you even higher for the best views of the city and even a small coffee shop.

It’s also interesting that you get an idea of how a structure that size is put together when you are in the underground area and further when you climb the stairs to the top observation deck and can view the internal aspects of the building.

Despite an elevator that goes near the top, you still need to climb up and down multiple flights of small, twisty, difficult stairs. At the top are fantastic views – just as good or better than from Torre Latinoamericana. The monument has an interesting history – it was originally designed to be the parliament building, but it was left unfinished, then partially destroyed, reimagined as revolution monument, later abandoned for 40 years, and ultimately reopened 2010. When we went (on a Monday) the monument was open but the museum was closed; they are run by different organizations.
