Its the National Slavery Museum!! And so, should give the visitors the real meaning of the Slavery, specially because this was a Big Deal in Angola. Overall there is some aspects of the slavery well represented, but the subject in matter deserves a real Museum.

The house which hosts the museum is very nice and well kept. However the museum is arranged in such a way that it doesnt give justice to what slavery meant to Angola.
