Based on previous reviews, I had only allowed myself about 30 minutes to visit this museum. It is physically small but has a lot packed into that space, including an interactive video. If you want to learn about Amilcar Cabral and his significance I would suggest leaving a bit more time as there is plenty of text to read. There are also some very personal mementoes, including Cabral's famous hat and his suitcase.

I learnt a lot and felt quite emotional reading the comments in the visitor book!

If you don't have time to visit I would suggest taking a look at the building, as there is a powerful mural painted on the exterior.

This was an amazing experience! If you are a history buff, you'll especially love this museum and this particular piece of history. It's located near the water with a beautiful view and not far from the residence of the country's president. Even if you're not much into history, you'll appreciate learning about Amilcar Cabral and everything that he contributed to the history of Cape Verde and the continent of Africa. He was more than a revolutionary; he was integral to the freedom of this beautiful island from her European colonizers. I was very unaware of Cabral's contribution so this was more than a learning experience. I came away with an education and a history lesson I will not soon forget.

Small and impressive museum and center of the movement of liberation of the african colonies. Friends of Cabral were in a meeting upstairs when we visited this house. In the cellar many books, photos, trunks and papers... everything will be carefully documented the next years. We had a good guide telling us the stories, showing us around.

A great place to learn the history about the revolutionist Amilcar Cabral. The musuem is dedicated to him and tells a lot of history about the past and what happened. There is a younger gentleman that works there and he speaks pretty good English so you will be able to understand. He does speak a lot and sometimes does not fully comprehend your question, but at least he has an idea. Overall, a great place to visit and definitely recommend every visitor to go there.

While walking in the street between the viewpoint Miradouro do Cruzeiro and the church Nossa Senhora da Graça we encountered this small museum, dedicated to the probably most important person in independent Cape Verde's young history.

There is no entrance fee and no gratuity expected, all the lady in charge showed us was an Amilcar-Cabral-T-Shirt to buy as souvenir. The museum, which opened in 2015, consists mainly of photographs, sorted by themes like education, the fight for independence or Cabral's biography. All is labeled in Portuguese only. But for foreign visitors there is a video shown in English (or Portuguese) about Cabral with people talking, who knew Amilcar Cabral personally. One of them was his daughter, whom we then happened to see in front of the museum, when leaving.

In a region where there is so little information on history about the struggle for independence post colonization, this place shines a light especially focusing on the revolutionary himself through videos photos and his own personal possessions. Clean organized detailed and very professional!

Not a lot inside this museum & there is now an entrance fee of 200$. However the young museum guide was helpful & explained a few things. Worth about 15 minutes!

Strolling in the town of Praia, where they were putting up christmaslights in the heat, I found a little museum. On the wall there was a nice and interesting tekst, about respect for everyone, The guide asked politly if maybe I had some time to visit this little museum. So , I did.It is really little : 3 rooms and a cellar full of books. Bur it is interesting. Amilcar Cabral wanted respect for the culture of his people, and he wanted that boys and girls could go to school.
