I really enjoyed seeing this museum! I knew much of the story of Leon Trotsky but being in the actual place where he lived in Mexico City was amazing and powerful. You can walk through the house and courtyard. The bullet holes from the Communist...More

Coyoacan is a magical place. While you are spending a day or two wandering around there, you should not miss this museum. If you are interested in history, even if you have no intention of wandering around Coyoacan, you must make the trip to come...More

The Museo Casa Leon Trotsky is interesting but it's a bit disappointing and I can't help but feel this could be so much better. A lot of the exhibition is in Spanish only and without an explanation it's not always easy to understand the significance...More

This is an off the beaten path museum, but holds so much historical significance in world history. The Russian Revolution changed the world forever in 1917 and Leon Trotsky was a key player in this revolution. It is not far from the Frida Kahlo Museum...More

This place has a real story to tell. From the bricked-up windows to the bullet holes in the bedroom. It's Soviet influence on parade.

I know my share of Soviet history but this Museum increased my knowledge of Trotsky considerably. The rooms of the house are well preserved (albeit somewhat sparse) and there are plenty of written archives and photos. There is even a Trotsky family tree and photos...More

Fascinating to see his home, his library (in Russian, German, Spanish and English,) his office and all. The whole story is here -- amazing. (And not far from Frida and Diego's houses, which also see. Did you know he had an affaire with Frida?)

This museum is two blocks away from the Kahlo museum. The Kahlo museum has a line around the block, but no one's here! Trotsky's and Kahlo's lives were intertwined. If you love Kahlo, you owe yourself a visit here. It's only MX$40.

The home of Leon Trotsky. A typical home of the region, but fortified after the first attempted assassination. The second was successful. An important lesson in the power of ideas.

If you want to learn about a very interesting episode of World History and see where it all ended, this is the real deal. This is the house where Leon Trotski lived and was killed, by Stalin's orders!

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
