Visited with my kids. Great little museum with descriptions in English. Next to the museum was a local market with paintings and hand made items. Well worth the visit.

This is an important historical site in Angola. It tells a lot about the slave trade. Be sure to visit the multipurpose room adjacent to the bathrooms in a separate building at the bottom of the hill. It houses photos of several slave sites along the Kwanzas River.
Built exactly at the point where the slaves were embarked to Brazil and other destinations in America. The museum presents visitors with tools and information about the slavery Era. A must-visit tourist attraction in Luanda.
