The National Museum of Anthropology is located in the Coqueiros neighborhood, in Luanda, Angola. Founded on November 13, 1976, the National Museum of Anthropology was the first museum institution created after the independence of Angola a year earlier. This scientific, cultural and educational institution is dedicated to the collection, research, conservation, valorization and dissemination of the Angolan cultural heritage. The National Museum of Anthropology consists of 14 rooms distributed over two floors that house traditional pieces, namely agricultural utensils, hunting and fishing, iron casting, musical instruments, jewelry, pieces of cloth made from bark and photographs of Khoisan people . Those who enjoy music have the opportunity to get to know the various traditional instruments and to hear a demonstration of the use of the marimba. The great attraction of the museum is the Masks Room which presents the symbols of the rituals of the Bantu people. In addition to its permanent core, the museum also hosts several temporary exhibitions.
