“Still the same after 50years”
Reviewed 31 January 2014

Went to the museum to recover part of my life. After 50 years the museum changed its name but all the stuffed animals are in the same posit and are the same ones. Worth visiting just for fun.

“a museum of a museum!!”
Reviewed 16 January 2014

Set in a beautiful building, the museum is desperately in need of renovation. Most objects (animals!) are about to fall apart and been there for more than fifty years!
The level of information provided also is really poor. all and all, pretty depressing!

“In serious need of funding, still worth a visit”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

I am really happy that they at least try to have a museum with an interesting collection, but the government should seriously consider a cash injection to bring it up to standard. The museum can be a centerpiece in Maputo to be proud of.

“interesting in its own way”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

It is a beautiful building opp Hotel Cardoso. It has an impressive mural by Malangatana outside. There is a new juice bar serving delicious smooties inside. And there is the (in)famous elephant fetus' collection. That makes it worth a visit....

“Surprisingly good”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

Quite an interesting range of animals here and displayed well. It is either free or very cheap (we didn't know as it was included in our tour).
