If you are in Maputo, the Central Train Station is Worth A Short Visit. During Our Visit, They had an Exhibit with Photos Illustrating the History of this Train Station as Well as other Prominent Train Stations (As Reported by Time Magazine). Interesting Architecture!

Great exhibit on history of trains in Mozambique. Relatively short visit, takes maybe 30 minutes. Building is impressive as well.

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.

Totally worth a visit. The building is marvelous! Just beware, it is in a very crowded area of town... take care of your belongings. There is a museum inside (free for students or 50 MT).
