Chega! Exhibition

Top choice museum in Dili

Set in the buildings and cells of a Portuguese-era prison where resistance figures were interned by the Indonesian military, Chega! (chega means 'stop' or 'no more' in Portuguese) houses the results of the Commission for Reception, Truth and Reconciliation (CAVR) process – documenting human rights abuses from 1974 to 1999. It's hard to find and navigate; best to head here with Dili History Tours.

Don't miss the gripping photographs displayed in the library, and the 'dark cells' that are a reminder of the countless human rights violations that occurred here.
