Attraction details
Reviewed 11 August 2013

The Natural Museum in not great, doesn't have many rooms, but the animals are well shown. If you are close to the museum, the visit is worth.

The museum does not have anything that exciting, except for maybe the bottled elephant fetuses, but if you're like to get off the streets and walk around someplace different for an hour it's worth a visit.

this is what I believe. This is interesting to see, it is said that it is one in the world most complete collection of the different stages of the elephant embryos. There is a story on these. They did not go on killing animals, but due to the fatality of life they did manage to preserve etc. It is a must visit if you are in the area.

This review is for the Geology Museum:
Located on Av. 24 de Julho 355, it contains exhibits of a wide variety of gemstones and minerals found in Mozambique.
Kudos to the charming and enthusiastic staff, who let us and our kids in, right on closing time!

It is good to have such a museum in an up and coming Afican town such as Maputo. However it still lack very interesting attractions. The area is quite nice and it is much more about having a feeling for what it was like during the Portuguese time.
