The most important place to visit in Timisoara!

A few steps north-east of Unirii Square, but well worth it. Located in an old military building that reminds you what things might be like if folks in Timisoara hadn't stood up to... read more

A few steps north-east of Unirii Square, but well worth it. Located in an old military building that reminds you what things might be like if folks in Timisoara hadn't stood up to the machine guns of the old Romanian regime. A well-organized, fascinating display, run not by the State but by an association dedicated to the memory of those... More

After trying to find the place for a while, we realised that the entrance was a completely unassuming place that had a guard dog close to the door, which was a bit intimidating. Once inside the dilapidated building, we paid our tickets and walked around. It is a large building with many rooms, all chronologically dedicated to the revolution that... More

We came to Timisoara for 1 day and wanted to find out about the recent history of the city. We were shown an interesting film about the December 1989 revolution, then the guide told us about the various exhibitions. Entrance fee was 10 lei for adults and 5 for children

I didn't know a great deal about the history of Timisoara and this was an excellent insight into the end of communism in Romania. It is mostly in Romanian but there is a short film with English subtitles. It doesn't take very long to see the whole thing, and it only cost 10 Lei, so it's worth going along to... More

This is a good place to visit if you want to know more about the romanian revolution. Here you can see diverse exhibits - including paintings made by kids from that period from which you can see their point of view towards the revolution. Also, here you can watch a movie filmed during the revolution. Besides it being avaible in... More

Romania has such fascinating history which needs to be felt, especially the 1989 Revolution and this is the place to be. To start off I saw a 30 minute film which I must say was very emotional because it was one of those "too real" moments that actually happened. Afterwards I walked around and photographed many displays of props, flags... More

An impressive overview of the revolution that took place in Romania in 1989. I saw it on television when I was younger and now I visited the city where it all begun in Romania, Timisoara. If you have some time, you really need to visit this museum.

If you visit this delightful Romanian town, this museum must be your first stop. Only after the museum does the history of the town and your tour of it make sense. I suspect the museum lacks funding, and certainly needs more effort, if only to tidy and maintain the surroundings. The staff welcomed us and explained the museum willingly. Entrance... More

This museum is located in the centre in former military barracks. The entrance is free and we got welcomed immediately by some staff who were eager to tell us what happened in '89. There's also a film showing and a small gallery along with many objects. Expect a visit to take about 2-3 hours.

This museum was very interesting, but could use work. Most of the information is in Romanian, and the video was somewhat disappointing (many parts were not translated, and the soundtrack was taken from the Lord of Rings movies, which was a bit distracting).
