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

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

Some incredible photographs of the Revolution set in an atmosphere that sets a time of see and admiration for the people of Romania and Timisoara....no heat in December, certain halls were lit others not....all seemed appropriate and experiential. A moving experience. One admission fee to enter, an additional fee to take photographs.

This is not a museum but a research centre but they have created interesting displays that show the history of the Romanian revolution and the fall of the Iron curtain. There is a video to start showing footage from the revolution in Timisoara. It is well worth a visit.

This museum and memorial to the 1989 Revolution is in a former police or army building. It is tended by a knowledgeable and enthusiastic curator who meets visitors, talks about the memorial, gives a potted history of some of the exhibits and then sets you down to watch a film about the 1989 Revolution and the key role that the...

We arrived not really knowing what to expect as the building is rather run down. But once inside we were warmly welcomed and shown a film which was a very informative. I'd highly recommend a visit to this museum..... It's definitely worth an hour of your day!!
