Leon Trotsky House/Museum (Museo Casa de León Trotsky), is a museum honoring Leon Trotsky, a Russian revolutionary, Marxist theorist, and Soviet politician whose particular strain of Marxist thought is known as Trotskyism. From January 1937 to April 1939, Trotsky and his wife lived in the Coyoacán area of Mexico City at La Casa Azul (The Blue House), the home of the painter Diego Rivera and Rivera's wife and fellow painter, Frida Kahlo, with whom Trotsky had an affair. His final move was a few blocks away to the residence on Avenida Viena in April 1939, following his falling out with Rivera.
The museum is jointly run by an organization that works to promote political asylum and is located in the #coyoacán borough of #mexicocity - 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 axe to the back of the head. The room in which Trotsky was killed remains exactly as it was at that moment, including the papers and the books in their exact positions. Around the house is a garden and high walls with watchtowers. The center of the garden contain a stone stele designed by Juan O’Gorman, which contains Trotsky’s ashes along with those of his wife. Above the stele is a flagpole with the Soviet flag. The complex was turned into the current museum and asylum institution in 1990, on the 50th anniversary of the assassination.
