    The Maputo Central Train Station, or CFM (Caminhos de Ferro de Moçambique) as written under the clock on the 51 m high central dome of the station, is quite possibly the most beautiful monument in Maputo and a fine example of colonial era architecture in Africa. The platforms are also decorated and well maintained. On the platform, which is on the left as you enter, there was a long line of large photos of stations with some resemblance built in the rest of the world. Definitely worth a visit and gives the opportunity to take interesting photos.

    The stained windows and unusual architecture were quite simply, stunning. Even though they were busy with some maintenance, it still couldn't detract from the experience. This stop has to be added to your visit to Maputo!

    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.

    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.

    This museum has so much to see and all the information is set out in Portuguese and English - so we could read about the history and all the exhibits. We all enjoyed it immensely - young and older. A great outing for the whole family!

    There are lots of shops at this mall including a supermarket. In addition, they have restaurants ranging from Turkish to Indian. The Indian restaurant is supposed to be excellent. I ate at the Turkish restaurant and the food was excellent!

    Really enjoyed this small exhibition of local artists. Wood carvings and paintings. The 20 metical entrance fee was cheap.

    There is no reason to go to Maputo to see this museum, but if you are in the area it is worth to spend 45 minutes in this Museum. Besides the old coins and banknotes from Mozambique and the world, it is interesting to see one of the oldest buildings from Maputo from the inside.

    Just next to Maputo port, the musuem get attention from those who walk by to look at the architecture design of the building itself. Display of fishing gears and boats from the past let you know the way of living of artisanal fishermen in Mozambique. Those who are of intetested in fishery aspect should not missed.

    There are a few interesting explanations but most of what you see are hundreds of different stones. I would only recommend this museum, if you are interested in stones ( I am not) or have nothing else to do.
