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!

If you're going to visit Frida's house, you have to visit the home of Leon Trotsky, especially since it's around the corner. The home is where Trotsky spent the last few years of his life. I've been twice and it's fantastic. It seems the price...More

If you have any knowledge of or interest in Russian history you are going to want to see the house in which Trotsky was assassinated. It is pretty much intact and that includes the desk at which Trotsky was sitting when he was attacked with...More

I "collect" dead Communists including the mummified Lenin in Moscow, Ho in Hanoi and Mao in Beijing (although he looked more plastic than dead) so how could I pass up this site?

We ended up here as it was close to Frida's house, and there was some historical interest in finding out a bit out Trotsky's association with Mexico. The exhibitions are tired, poorly explained and not particularly well maintained and are all rather dull. Wouldn't recommend...More

Only 40 pesos entry which we felt was reasonable. Lots of photos and posters and a few cabinets of items in the 2 main rooms, but the real gem is the gatden and the house where Leon lived and was assasinated. There are free tours...More

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
