We visited the train station while doing a city tour of Maputo. The station was nice and clean (although it was on a Sunday). There was not much to see but it was a nice part of the outing.

Maputo's Central Train Station is an impressive structure still used today, but with rich history. Photos of the Train Station's development and progress over the years are displayed along the area where people wait for trains. There's also a museum with artifacts and detailed information.

Just stroll around and enjoy the architecture. You do need to get on a train to enjoy this venue with its central location near the waterfront
