Beautiful Museum, very well organised, if you book in advance you can request a guide tour. We were lucky to get this service without booking, one of the Sargent kindly showed us around.

If you are traveling to Luanda it is mandatory to visit this spot. For several years was left abandoned, but it was refurbished and looks amazing. The view over the city of Luanda is unique and the permanent exibitions are worthy to be visited. Now and then, at this location, there are some good art and music events.

This is a nice place to visit, rich in history. The "Fortaleza" was once a Portuguese fortress built in 1634 to defend the access to Luanda (old capital name was São Paulo da Assunção de Loanda). It has a prominent view of the bay, and surrounding area. It is a must see if you visit Luanda.

So the positives on this site: the views of Luanda are stunning. You get to see the bay and the rest of Luanda really well. The fort is in the old star formation so it’s a great find for military enthusiasts. The negatives: I would have appreciated a tour to understand what I was looking at in the displays. The displays jumped from native Angolan to Portuguese quickly without any context. Is it worth visiting? Yep. Is it worth prescheduling a guide? Absolutely
