Lovely old building displaying the geology of Mozambique. It cost MZN50 to get in so really cheap. The displays are old and could do with a freshen up but it is very interesting and you are allowed to take photos.

This is as good as a hidden treasure and a MUST SEE. I did not find visitors - local or foreigners but the collection is impressive. Entry is also free and the small but nice museum is very clean.

It took us less than half an hour to go through everything they had in this museum. The collection is not bad, but there is absolutely nothing written in English, which is quite a pity, as they have a historical and geological part and it...More
