  • A really nice and informative museum about the struggles this country had, with a brief history since the Portuguese colonization through very detailed information of the Indonesian occupation and the Timorese uprisings against it. It is a very small museum, so you wouldn’t need more than two hours there. 1$ entry fee. Definitely worth it, it’s good to know the history of this special nation.
  • excellent place to know the history how Timorense struggle for their Independence since Portuguese colonization and Indonesian occupation. This small museum will makes you discover all unique and tragic history of Timor-Leste event you only spend one day in Dili, because it only takes one hours with 1 dollar entry fee.
