The Museum is tucked away and not very well signposted. It is in an old Army Barracks building which is very unassuming and has seen better days. It is small and free to enter although they do ask for donations. We chose to give 20 leu each, approximately £5 per person. This Museum is a hidden gem! The gentleman running... More

This place is hard to find. It was next to a park and an university. Close on Sunday, but open on Monday to Sat. The film is for me very interesting. In the beginning, I am still a bit skeptical about Timisoara's importance in Romania. After the the film, I realized that it stands for the mother of democracy. Outside... More

An interesting museum just north of the centre. Free, although a donation is requested. Watch the 20minute video about Timisoara's role in the revolution.

I would recommend to visit this museum to anyone who finds themselves in Timisoara, it is a very interesting piece of history of the Romanian revolution of 1989, with videos of the protests and of the happenings of those days. When I went there, a quaint guide (I believe) was there, and he accompanied me through the place, which was... More

This is a must do when traveling to Timisoara. The Director of the Museum personally takes you around and shares his personal story. Before the tour, there is a 20 minute video which gives you a thorough overview of the Revolution!

Timisoara was the birthplace of the Romanian revolution in 1989. Next to the fall of the Wall (six weeks earlier) this was the most dramatic event in the collapse of communism in eastern Europe. For anyone in today's democratic Europe, it is imp;ossible to understand the danger those protestors faced in 1989 - but they had simply had enough. They... More

It was a little bit of a search but in the end we found the museum. A nice lady gave some explanation but in fact you can visit the museum in your own tempo. For us it was especially striking because on the day we went there was a demonstration on the spot where everything started, against the government. We... More
