Definitely worth a look, the exhibitions are nothing amazing, quite basic. The building itself is beautiful.

The museum, for the time and the mentality of the period, can be considered complete, not less than other of the same period in Europe. There is a huge collection of stuffed animals. The imagination of the embalmers has reproduced bloody scenes that, in their...More

Old-fashioned museum - very old-fashioned - in stunning colonial-era building. Sadly, the main exhibit, filling the ground floor, is stuffed animals. We were fresh from Kruger, and my senses revolted at being confronted with these dead examples. Left withourt seeing the rest of the museum.

I just came back from a visit to this museum. I honestly think they could charge more than 50MT & restore/revamp the museum. Beautiful building from an architectural point of view, but it is so dated inside & not really well kept. So much more...More

This place is amazing. You can see animals in their natural habitat just like as they're alive. My daughter was so delighted! I've been living in Maputo for my entire life but being there with my child was an amazing experience. Children can see live...More

The museum itself is a bit dated but there are some interesting things to see. Get a guide as you will hear some interesting tidbits about it and is inexpensive. Some artistic surprises there too

Loved how you get to see real size how huge the animals you see on a safari really are and the elephant fetus was really amazing to see. Won’t see anything like it in any other museum in the world

I found the exhibitions uninteresting and not really engaging. The museum appears to be unkept, probably because they lack funding to keep the exhibits looking clean and presentable. The actual content of the museum is just not very interesting. It’s just a group of displays...More
