  • Small art museum with Mozambican art. Most pieces appear to date from the 1980's and 90's. Art is a window into a nation's psyche, so this is well worth the time. Titles are in Portuguese, get a translation (translation app, etc.) to have some context. No photography is allowed, even without flash. Entrance fee was 100 MZN for foreigners, 50 for citizens, and 25 for students.
  • Need a rolling collection to make it interesting. Most of the collection on display is from the past.
