Museum of Natural History

Another very fine public building in Maputo is the Museum of Natural History. There are very good exhibits of animals that have historically existed in Mozambique and a lot of interesting history about actions and policies by black Africans and Europeans. At top is the beautiful facade of the building. Inside the front door, are tusks of elephants who were killed in a huge hunt of the animals that cleared thousands of them. At bottom are two photos of life-size dioramas of dramatic action using the real stuffed animals as examples. A great museum.
