  • Housed in a beautiful Portugese rococo style building, the museum's main exhibition is one of stuffed animals. Especially animals of prey like lions and leopards are often depicted in bloody scenes...

  • The exhibits were interesting but some rooms or walkways were not accessible due to maintenance needing to be done. We found the outdoor dinosaurs fun and some of the indoor exhibits very interesting though. Worth the visit, just wish it was in better shape.
  • Museum of Natural History, located in the centre of Maputo city easily accessible. It shows most wildlife in Mozambique(including some African countries) with a section with crafts from old times in Mozambique. Really worth visiting. The entrance fee is reasonable.
