We visited this museum one morning. Interesting visual display of images and flags from the revolution and enjoyed the exhibition of children's art interpretations of the revolution. The movie was also quite good and worth a watch. Good balanced historical content.

A hard-to-find, unlikely museum, with a peeling façade and under-construction interior. Walk in and the custodian will call the curator; for a small donation, he provides a brief tour and history of the 1989 revolution in Romania and Europe. A very-different touristic experience in Romania.

My partner and I are on a 6 week tour of Romania and arrived in Timisoara at the same time as a heat wave. With that in mind we looked at indoor 'attractions' and this was on our list. A little difficult to find, look our for the revolution mural on the wall, it looks nothing special from the outside.... More

This museum is a bit run down, they use the entrence fee for restoring the place. It is housed in an old military barrac and this gives you a feeling of the cold war period. There is a film about the revolution in Timisora. It has lots of pictures from the revolution. We loved this place and learning about the... More

I can't believe this is privately run and there aren't more in the country. An enlightening place to get a feel for the Romanian recent history.

As others have mentioned, the building is nothing special, but then if his memorial were housed in a glitzy modern structure it would lessen its character and message. Speak to the staff, they are knowledgable and provide a deeper insight into the aftermath of the revolution. Make sure you also visit the flag room.

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!
