The entry fee is MTM50. There are some displays downstairs of African animals which are dusty and old. Upstairs there are a few other exhibits. It was OK but not a must see.

Although the interior is not very interesting, with just a couple of rooms with stuffed animals, the architecture of the building is impressive.

Mildly Interesting Museum on 2 Floors of A Victorian Mansion. The Main Floor features a Large Life-sized Display of Wildlife. Don't Miss the Display Illustrating Elephant Development (in a Back Corner). Upstairs are Similar Displays of Insects and Fish. Allow 20-30 Minutes.

It is a place to tick off if you are in Maputo. It will take about an hour to visit. It has different stuffed animals of Mozambique, mammals, fishes, etc.

It isn't free to get in but in mts it was pretty cheap back in 2013 when I was there last. It would cost next to nothing in USD.
