First they show you a 30 mins movie about how the revolution started and what involved it. Mr. Orban is an amazing host, who lived and actually was shot during the revolution and can tell you a lot of things about communism period and the end of it in Romania. Then you visit 7 rooms containing lot of informations. At... More

this is not your standard museum in a fancy buulding. It is actually in a somewhat run-down looking building way out of the main area. But to see the chronology of the revolution is worth the search! The building is not clearly labeled. You will be looking for a 2-story building set waaaay back from the road with a hand... More

The museum itself is in a building that needs repair, but this should not stop you to visit this place. The items collected and the memory of the Romanian revolution that started in Timisoara just 25 years ago, help one to understand how life was. The museum guide himself is a living evidence of the revolution, so you can ask... More

Well.. this museum is not like any other. Althought the building is not so impressive, the pieces of information which you can find there are just incredible. If you do not know much about the Romanian communist perios and you wanna learn about it, then this is the place to go. This museum really moved me!

This understated memorial to the struggle and price paid for freedom in Romans should be visited by all. Christmas "89 brought the "old hammer" down on citizens of Timisoara but its force crushed the 40 year rein of communism. Dozens paid with their lives, hundreds were hurt and wounded. Yet, thousands were made free. If we fail to remember the... More

A seriously eye-opening and educational museum. The documentary is moving, the images are honest and the artifacts are at times terrifying. I was lucky to talk to a member of staff at length about the Revolution, along with social living in Romania, corruption, English politics and the world at large. Unmissable!!

It's is not easy to find but located in an old military house at the north side of the city centre. You don;t go here to have a fun time, but you go here to get a historical perspective on the courage that the Romanian had just a mere 25 years ago.

For those of a certain age Timisoara is inextricably linked with the fall of communism in Eastern Europe. For younger folks it's a fascinating piece of history you should know about so the same mistakes are never repeated. If you visited the Checkpoint Charlie museum in Berlin and learned about the breaching of the Berlin Wall this museum is your... More

The museum has impressed me. We where lucky to speak a lot with director who was wounded in revolution, He speaks with a lot of passion about revolutionary days. If I have to chose only one place in Timisoara this would be the one.
