The architecture is beautiful and you can walk around for free, though there is a museum in the back you have to pay for if you want to visit. Only 50MZN. We had heard there was a bar/restaurant, but they told us it was closed.

Gorgeous train station museum and must see when visiting Maputo. The platform area would be an amazing set for fashion photo shoot. Building well preserved. There's a little coffee shop there, stop and have coffee whilst enjoying beauty of this building.

To view first hand days yonder, this is a great stop. Original architecture has been well-preserved with friendly locals all around. In the tropical heat of Maputo, this colonial relic has weathered through and stands firm
