(4.4/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Walk through prison cells-turned-exhibit-rooms at Memorial Museum of the Victims of Communism and the Resistance, and learn about the communist repression and the totalitarian system in Romania from 1945 to 1989. More than 56 cells of the former prison educate visitors about various topics, such as the Cold War, the persecution of students and intellectuals, peasants' uprisings, and workers' strikes. The museum treasures documents, photographs, 5,000 hours of audio and video recordings, as well as much artwork. Do not miss the large sculptural composition "Cortege of the sacrificial victims" in the inner courtyard. The group features 18 figures standing against a prison wall.

  • Like all places of remembrance, we enter silently on tiptoe. Right before your eyes the faces, an entire corridor of faces and names, stories, tears, suffering and hope. Learn, remember, pay tribute to these tens of thousands of innocent victims of communism, Romanian is the minimum of Justice that we can make them.

  • This is a must see, both for building itself and for the story behind it. The place is very organised despite the low ticket price.
