This used to be a prison where political prisoners were incarcerated during Timor Leste's fight for independence. It is now a well laid out museum that charts the history of the independence struggle and also the actions of the international community that influenced the resistance and also the occupying army. Publications can be purchased detailing the findings of Timor Leste's Truth and Reconciliation tribunal.

An extremely well laid out exhibition of some of the recent history of Timor Leste. Only a $1 entrance fee and well worth a visit.

During 1980 until 1985, every day my mom and I visited the place just to say hello to my father. The place was a prison before, also named as comarca balide. My father and his friends was in a prison for the political reason because they want fight for the independence of Timor-Leste from the ocupation at the time. After the independence, with minor rehabilitation, the memory still there when you walk near to the place, espeacially for those that ever become a prison or other that ever visited that place when it was a prison.
