When I went there was no power so I looked at the art with the flashlight on my phone. The collection indeed needs updating, it's all from the same era and not much variety of artists.
Small art museum with Mozambican art. Most pieces appear to date from the 1980's and 90's. Art is a window into a nation's psyche, so this is well worth the time. Titles are in Portuguese, get a translation (translation app, etc.) to have some context. No photography is allowed, even without flash. Entrance fee was 100 MZN for foreigners, 50 for citizens, and 25 for students.
