The monument, a memorial to former President Agostinho Neto is astonishing and you can see it from several points of the city.

I tried to see the interior in several occasions with no success, the guards of this heavy secure location always said its closed.

This must be one of the largest monuments to any communist leader in the world. I can only imagine it costing a small fortune to erect. You cannot miss it either on the skyline or driving around the parliament area

Good to laern a little of Angola war history and revolution period. Also you can see the tomb of the first president and learning about the simbols represented in the flag and how each industry is represented (mining, agro, etc)

The Mausoleum of Agostinho Neto with its tall statue and huge mausoleum is very impressive and a must-visit site for all first-time visitor to Luanda. We took an one-hour taxi ride around town in order to familiarize ourselves with the city sights. The driver made the first stop at the mausoleum and took us inside. Since we were told photograph inside the mausoleum was prohibited, we missed the opportunity to record the interior of the place. However both the exterior and interior of this site are worthy for visitors.

This is a massive mausoleum and well preserved and venerated by the Angolan government. One feels the impact this leader had on their nation

Quite an impressive building built for Angola’s first president and founding father who died in 1979. A Russian designed building it stands 120m tall and seems to represent the era of space rockets. Inside the mausoleum is a museum portraying the life of Dr. Neto, plus his final resting place. There's a lot of wasted space in this mausoleum. From this structure one can view the Citadel Alta which houses the National Assembly, president’s palace, old governor’s palace, ministries of defence and justice and other government buildings which are all in pink and white. Members of the president’s extended family and senior government officials live in splendid isolation. Security was extremely tight with soldiers and police everywhere and regular patrols of the president’s heavily armed elite guard.

Sorry that we could not get in. He was truly a great man for his people and the monument reflects this. However, the guards would not let us in to pay our respect and walk around.

Compared to the lesser funded museums this place is extremely grandeur, a lot of space almost entirely of Neto. It is interesting, we had a guide, which we didn't ask for, but he just appeared and spoke excellent English and showed out small group around. The place is quite large with areas of actively, ie rooms for painters and sculptors, a representative statue of each Angola professions, a memorial room of fresh wreaths from all over the world- said to be replaced daily at what we thought was a huge waste, and big rooms with lots of historical photographs . Clean washrooms
