“Resistensia Timorense Muzeu”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

This is a magnificent building, which houses the history of a proud people and a proud nation. It is very sad and often tortuous to walk around the Muzeu and observe, look and watch the documentaries and the dark history of Timor-Leste pre -1999. It is educational and is equivalent to the mandatory visit to Robben Island off Cape Town,RSA.

“Emotional and thought-provoking”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

This is really a must-see experience, particularly Australians. We were appalled during our visit, at how our country turned their backs on this fledgling nation. Well set out chronologically, impartial, without bias on their part. The Timorese have an amazing history and this attraction showcases the birth of Timor-Leste.

“Improving each year”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

The proposed educational services reading room will be a winner. My recent visit again proves to me that this facility is improving each year and has future plans to not only inform visitors of actual historical details but also the awareness of the young generation of Timor - Leste. Well done Tania and staff.

“Every visitor should know this”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

If you know the history of the Indonesian occupation, you'll still appreciate the copies of documents, the photographs and the emotion of this display. Most of it is translated into English, a couple of old TV clips are in Portuguese. The Archives promised on the ticket were not available the day I visited.

“Resistance Museum, Dili, Timor Leste”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a fascinating museum, not for the faint hearted, but as it explains the events and players involved in the Timorese struggle for independence that is to be expected. Very professional staff provide excellent support. A must see if you are in Dili.
