A "must see", if you visit Dili, Timor-Leste (East Timor), to understand the "fight for freedom", the sacrifices made by a generation past and some who are still alive today to secure an Independent Timor-Leste.

Totally worth spending an hour to learn about the Timorese struggle for independence. Very well arranged, although more English language explanatory notes would be helpful. Tickets available at the gate at USD1.00. No photography inside allowed

A somber reminder of the past.

This museum puts the current situation of Timor Leste into perspective. One need to take the time to read the information as presented. While it is a lot to take in, it's well worth it.

Great place to learn some fascinating history
Sep 2019
Fairly well done museum for a small country, it really is a must-see for any visitors. Very inspiring to understand how difficult Timorese recent history has been, and how much this amazing country has overcome.

A fascinating introduction to Timor's tumultuous history
Jul 2019 • Business
This is a fantastic museum, and an essential visit for anyone who wants to learn more about Timor's fascinating and tumultuous history. The displays focus on the fight for independence from Indonesian from 1975 to 2000, but also give detailed background about the Portuguese colonial period, and the development of a democratic state since gaining independence. Information boards are in Tetum, Portuguese, and English, and the helpful staff will spend time chatting to you if you ask questions. Be prepared fro some confronting material, such as footage of massacres, and (for Australian tourists) a less-than flattering portrayal of Australia's involvement in the occupation by Indonesia. This is a wonderful museum, and well worth multiple return visits.

Well worth a visit!
