    Still looks beautiful from outside, and clearly well-maintained. I enjoyed the display banners timeline since it was built. I was surprised that it was voted by a few media as one of the top train stations globally!

    Walked out with a few items - difficult to resist the colourful items made and sold by locals there. They are great influencers. I have been to markets in many countries (including Asia) and the prices are not cheap here. Have to negotiate which is accepted.

    Went to spend some time in quiet early on Saturday but seems that an event was happening so I only stayed for ten minutes. The interior is very unique but I couldn't find the Tabernacle, if it was what I think it was it didn't have the red candles so I couldn't identify it.

    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.

    We didn't go inside, but it was really interesting to see it from outside and know the history of who designed it, where it was pre-built, for whom and then never lived in.

    We have seen better markets, but that goes for almost everything in Maputo, so defenitely worth a look. Food and non-food here, lots of wigs.

    It was interesting to see the old cannons and walk around inside but it would have been better if there were a guided tour on giving some more facts and history. The exhibits inside were also good.

    Went in for a relaxing stroll. Extremely clean, peaceful, and only a few locals (seems like great place to escape the office), and safe.

    The Museum of the Railroads of Mozambique is a treasure of colonial architecture that is well preserved, clean, and interesting. There are antique train engines on view and the building itself. It is a must see on any visit to Maputo.

    Really well-maintained, still as white as if it was painted this month. Went inside for a peep, but not as impressive inside as from outside.

    Drive through the roundabout and you can't miss it. Area was quite (for a city roundabout) and very clean. Right next to Cathedral
