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 axe to the back of the head. Around the house is a garden and high walls with watchtowers. A former handball court—to the rear of the actual house—has been modified and incorporated into a library, contemporary gallery, permanent display, offices, and auditorium. It now serves as the main entrance to the museum on Río Churubusco 410. "On September 24, 1982, by presidential decree, the property was declared a historical monument" and the complex was turned into the current museum and asylum institution in 1990, on the 50th anniversary of the assassination.
