Trip Planner: Europe / Romania / Transylvania / Northwest Romania / Maramures County / Sighetu Marmatiei / Memorial of the Victims of Communism and of the Resistance
Walk through prison cells-turned-exhibit-rooms at Memorial of the Victims of Communism and of 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.

Looks like thy just throw every piece of information available, and it is too much. Less documents and a more personal experience would be better. Also, by putting communism as "all bad", it is saying that everything opposed to communism is good. What I mean is that it lacks some global and historical perspective.
Really nice museum with loads of interesting historical facts about the communist era in Romania. But unfortunately not well preserved as eveything in this country. Such a shame!
