Majestic and impressive monument, it is much bigger in person than what it seems in pictures. We did not go up the monument as we were short on time but I was told it was about 50 pesos. Great location for pictures, very unique structure and architecture.

The Revolucion monument offers some great views. Don't bother with the full package - involving some guided tours and a look a the foundations. The view from the top is pretty good.

Stumbled upon this attraction as it was opening. We were the first group up at 10am and were able to appreciate the monument and views without a crowd. It was well worth the 50 pesos to go up to the observation deck.

This attraction is mostly about how it took over 100 years to get it built, after many interruptions, design changes, and intended uses for the building. It was opened in its current iteration in 2010. The views from the Mirador are good, and the underground foundations are really fascinating if you are at all interested in architecture or design.

The history of Mexico is very rich. The museum of the revolution is very interesting and the information you get there is really broad. It is worth doing the visit to the top and looking around, mostly at night.

A very nice monument celebrating the mexican revolution. It is in the center of the city very close to major hotels. It is free and if you speak a bit of spanish you do not need any guide for it

Carlos Oregon Santacilia was the architect of this Art Deco style monument. Built in 1938, stands at 67 meters and offers the visitor a brief tour using the glass elevator that takes you to the top. Amazing 360 views from the top provide a great picture opportunity of the city. There is a museum at the basement and souvenir gift... More

This place was not too far from our hotel, so we just walked to it to see what it was. Glad we went, as it was something to see. It is really big and it was busy, as there were a lot of people there on a late Saturday afternoon. There is an elevator that takes people to the upper... More
