Resistance Museum

Top choice museum in Dili

An excellent museum, established in 2005, which commemorates Timor-Leste's 24-year struggle against the Indonesian occupation. Falintil’s resistance is brought to life with a timeline, photos, video recordings and exhibits of the weapons and tools of communication that the East Timorese used in their fight for independence. You can watch harrowing footage of the Santa Cruz Massacre here before heading to Santa Cruz Cemetery.
