“Pretty cool monument.”
Reviewed August 27, 2014

Haven't visited the museum, (Don't know why!) but have been around the monument many times. It's a little reminiscent of Paris's Arc de Triumph although not as ornate or large. Not a good area to be in after dark, unless with friends.

“Perspective ”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

I thought this was definitely worth the 40 pesos to ride the lift to the observation deck . We had great views over the city on a nice sunny day . Really highlights how massive Mexico City is !

“Nice museum, a bit expensive”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

Most of the museums in Mexico City are very cheap or free, the ones that charge more money are usually big museums or museums that offer a different experience, this museum is the exception, the revolution monument is a very iconic building of the city, it has many history and it was partially abandoned for many years, the government restored it and opened new places creating a really nice atmosphere and they also installed an elevator to visit the top of the building where there are telescopes to appreciate the view. the museum is installed on the basement of the monument where there are also cafeterias and a gift shop, the price is quite elevated for a Mexican museum but still very cheap in comparison with international museums, the fee of the elevator is separated from the visit to the museum so you can visit the expositions without paying to get to the top of the building, really nice experience and really close to paseo de la reforma, you can visit this museum on sundays where paseo de la reforma is closed to the cars and there are a lot of bikes, you can get there walking from the main hotels of the avenue.

“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

We stumbled on this monument when walking on Reforma when the boulevard is closed on Sundays. Fun to take the elevator up and enjoy the views. We qualified for an inexpensive "senior fare" for the elevator ride and museum. The museum was a bonus. To put it mildly, this history of Mexico is exciting and in my opinion, complicated. Interesting to see the shrinking map of Mexico over the years as places like Texas went away. And yes, there are some folks like Pancho Villa buried there. We went about 1:00 on a Sunday and there was no wait at all. On a side note, it's sad to see so few American tourists in Mexico. We were in Mexico City & Cuernavaca for five days and felt totally safe.

“Nice views. Good for a short visit”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Try to go in the evening if you can. They turn on exterior lights at 8 pm and the monument looks beautiful at that time.

We did not go to the museum but we did take the tour that allows you to walk up to the top as they explain the history of the monument. They basically only speak Spanish though so if you speak English only, just get the regular admission.

The view is nice from the top but you can't really see any main landmarks. The zocalo is too far and blocked by taller buildings.

You can probably enjoy this attraction in 30-45 minutes.
