You can't leave Timisoara without visiting this "museum". It hasn't a beautiful design and it isn't well kept, but when you come into you can live the Comunist period and the revolution. You find many photos, articles of international press, video with subtitles and some war remainders.

Although the museum itself was difficult to find it was worth the visit. In certain ways it looks like an improvised, but interesting display of the end of the cold war and the Romanian revolution. For some reason I didn't have a recollection of the fact that the revolution in Romania caused this many victims. We have one tip for... More

Very good display of information on the revolution in Timisoara in 1989. Especially appreciated the documentary, the elementary children's art display, and the excellent photographs throughout. My only wish is that there were more plaques with English translations for the captions, headlines, etc. Still fantastic nonetheless since pictures are worth 1,000 words. :)

If you have an hour or so, I recommend this museum and its "homemade" exhibits. The exhibits are not professionally done, in the usual sense, but they have a very authentic feel about them. Unfortunately for a tourist, the exhibits are almost entirely in Romanian (fitting with the intended audience of the museum). However, there is a 20 minute video... More

This one's a little tough. It's important to visit. Romania's revolution was complicated, and a lot of people were hurt. Yet the endearing soul of those who stood up for freedom is on full display here. Flags and various items are on display that were used in Timisoara's revolution that started it all. The downside here, is that apart from... More

If you want ti discover the true Timisoara, you have to vsisit Memorialul Revolutiei, a museum dedicated for the December 1989 Revolution. It's located near to the Unirii Square...

We went there in order to visit the museum but unfortunately the man said it was all written in romanian and just a video subtitled in english. So, it was a pitty but we decided not to visit it.

This is a fascinating little museum but it's not obvious to spot and has little in the way of signage. Like many similar Eastern European museums devoted to the transition to democracy, there is a strong focus on the local area - Timisoara, but also Romania, and the movements across Eastern Europe that were taking place at the time. There's... More

This museum took a while to find but it shouldn't as it is just off the square and has an enormous 1989 banner outside! The museum is not accessible by wheelchair on the first floor but there is plenty to see on the ground floor and only a couple of steps to navigate. The curator helped us up the steps.... More
