First thing first: this is not a proper museum; it's just a collection of regular household objects from 30 years ago. For those trying to get a picture of how it was back in the day, there are too many items in one place to...More

I got really disappointed when I visited this "museum". In my opinion this is not a real museum because it is only a pub whit communist objects.

If you can, go to this museum with a local person, such as Timisoara City Tours, so they can explain the significance of the items in this collection. Extremely telling of the rough times that the Romanians had under Ceausescu. There is no fee to...More

A different kind of museum filled with a lot of typical Romanian objects from the communism times. Brought back so many childhood memories. A must see to get the vibe of those days.

First off, it’s difficult to find, but it is just where the map states. There’s no big sign but the entrance is just off the street up some stairs behind a gate. The collection is really interesting, and there’s a bar upstairs where you can...More
