It's just a small house with 5 rooms with information about slavery in Angola. One can visit this museum in 20 min. Still, worth the visit.

The museum is composed of two or three small rooms, no bigger than those of an average house. It has some print displays but the information there isn't much deeper than what you would get with a visit to Wikipedia. There's no flow to the...More

Small, no English translations but an interesting place. We could make out bits a pieces but it did not tell the story as well as some other slave museums. I think they should up the info. Shopping next door at the craft area was more...More

Its the National Slavery Museum!! And so, should give the visitors the real meaning of the Slavery, specially because this was a Big Deal in Angola. Overall there is some aspects of the slavery well represented, but the subject in matter deserves a real Museum.

The house which hosts the museum is very nice and well kept. However the museum is arranged in such a way that it doesnt give justice to what slavery meant to Angola.
