National Museum of the Revolution

Museo Nacional de la Revolución

More than 60 years of Mexico’s history lives deep under in the Plaza de la República.

Under the massive Monumento a la Revolución lies the crypt holding the remains of Villa, Madero, Carranza, and Cárdenas. It is accompanied by a fine exhibit relating the history of the Mexican Revolution, from 1857 to 1920, the enactment of the 1857 Constitution, and the presidency of Venustiano Carranza. 

The museum’s galleries show the leaders of the revolutionary movement, key newspaper reports of the day, documents, photos, maps, copies, audio recordings, videos, objects, and figures that put the Revolution in context. 

History is told through interactive stations, screens playing footage from the era, and attractive iconography.
