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.

To see the names engraved on the memorial, and so many of them made one consider the price at which the freedom of Romania from Communism came - indeed the freedom for the whole of eastern europe. A place to contemplate and remember

This should be first on any visitor's list of things to see in Timisoara. While only a short walk north of Piata Unirii and then across the main road, the location is not obvious and you really need the map from their website to be sure of finding it; note that the museum has recently moved, and the Str. Emanuil... More

I went 3 months ago and my girlfriend went yesterday. Both times we were lucky that there weren't people around and could talk to the director. The lady that works there is also very nice, and they are all eager to answer your questions, so try to read up before you go. He was shot in the leg during the... More

To find this museum, get directions from the very helpful woman at the tourist office, as (due to it having moved a couple of times recently) the wrong location is shown on some tourist maps. Its well worth the effort, and the curator is helpful.
