The museum is very well presented with multi-language displays. I reckon that everyone who visits / lives here should be fully aware of the harrowing history of this place and the amazing and ultimately successful resistance movement.

If you're looking for any information on the resistance and atrocities of the Timorese struggle during the Indonesian occupation, this is your place. We were amazed by the wealth of information that was documented in detail for what we thought was an insignificant country. If you are really interested about what happened during the resistance, you'll happily spend a day here.

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.

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.
