Small but excellent art museum featuring well-mounted paintings and large sculptures by Mozambican artists. Each work is labelled with name of artist, title (in Portuguese, but usually understandable), when born, and when the piece was created. Two floors.

The small art museum only has a couple of galleries, but includes some nice works. Photography is not allowed. It is located a few metres from the corner of Av. Karl Marx & Av. Ho Chi Min.
