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

Excellent museum to understand what comunism was for Romania. It has many historical objects and a room where you can see the Revolution film.

It wasn't easy to find this little museum that really needs some refurbishing work: people don't know it and our touristic guide wasn't so precise. But we found it. In a little room you can see a 20 minutes film of that 7 days that changed Romania: from December 15 1989 to December 22 1989, when Timisoarian people decided to... More

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 Good balanced historical content.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.
