The Leon Trotsky House Museum, Trotsky Museum, or Trotsky House Museum, (Spanish: Museo Casa de León Trotsky) is a museum honoring Leon Trotsky and an organization that works to promote political asylum, located in the Coyoacán neighborhood of Mexico City. Its official name is Instituto del Derecho de Asilo - Museo Casa de León Trotsky (Right of Asylum Institute - Leon Trotsky House Museum).
The center of the complex is the house where Trotsky and his second wife, Natalia Sedova, lived from April 1939 to August 1940, and where Trotsky was murdered. The house has been kept as it was at that time, especially the study in which Ramón Mercader killed Trotsky with an ice pick to the back of the head. Around the house is a garden and high walls with watchtowers.

Perhaps the most surprising thing we did in Mexico City, this place is not to be missed. It is beautiful, like everything else here, but it is also so interesting. I would highly recommend watching the hour plus documentary. It is possibly the best historical documentary I have ever seen and I am a huge history buff. It seems like a while, but it is vital for contextualizing, not just Trotskys life, but also Mexican, Russian, and world history, which it does brilliantly

You pay to enter a Marxist's home. It is quiet, generally not full. There is a small restaurant and the jamaica with grape juice is great.

Interesting, little place to visit along side the Casa de Azul. Costs M$40 to enter. Learned a little bit more about Trotsky.

I knew very little about Leon Tronsky and found this museum fascinating. The museum provides plenty of information and the home/compound itself is interesting. Worth a 45 minute to 1 hour stop.

Being very honest, this museum is more interesting than La Casa Azul, the timeline for Rusia, Mexico and the rest of the world is really good. The sad part is that the Leon Trotsky house in the outside walls have a lot of graffiti's
