  • 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.  more »
  • The estate is very real. It is recommended to all who live or visit Angola. Is not too large, but portrays without major rodeos the past of slavery.

  • A small house with three rooms. Pay nothing at the entrance, is open and free to the public. A 'guide' came to tell us the story, but he said less than the explanations on the walls, only in Portuguese. We came back to the signs on the walls. Various explanations. Short and rather well done and informative, I learned a lot. 20-30' tour. Nice view in bonus.
