The Regional Museum of Huambo was created in 1948 by the Municipality of Nova Lisboa - named Huambo before National Independence - to preserve and make known the habits and customs of the people who formerly lived in the provinces of Bié and Kuando Kubango.
This museum is a true treasure of the country's history. It has about three thousand pieces of sacred art, botany, anthropomorphic, ethnographic, archaeological, photographs of prints and paintings.
The objects are intended to portray the way people lived: since what kind of tools were used in hunting, agriculture, fishing and what kind of objects were used for domestic purposes. Their collection portrays the way of life in Huambo until 1975.
