“Totally disappointing”
Reviewed January 13, 2014 via mobile

Took a tour around Maputo. One of the stops was at the railway station. We couldn't even get off the bus with all the vendors fighting with each other to make a sale. Couldn't walk around the outside of the building without getting harassed - so much so that my 10 yr old daughter got completely petrified.

“Worth a look if you are nearby”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

If you make a walk through the city, this is worth going inside and have a look. It is quiet, just some Security folks inside. There are two colonial steam engines on display.

“Maputo Central Station”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Old building full of history. Some Effiel works can be seen at this station. Also there is a bar with lots of entertainment on weekends. A must.

“There is better in Maputo than this”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

This is a big old train station that still works. Very ncie design but rundown and not too exciting. I dont think this is in Top Ten of things to do in Maputo. Why come all the way to Mozambique just to see a train station that has hundreds just like it aruodn teh world? Look for better things in Maputo liek the islands and Mafalala.

“Interesting”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Stunning old building, it is just a shame that it is not maintained. The area has an abandoned feeling, but definitely something to see when visiting Maputo. There is a small gallery featuring local art.
