Part of the KuNgoni Art Centre is the Chamare Museum. It is a compact ethnographic museum and is undoubtedly the best in Malawi. It describes the Chewa, Ngoni and Yao cultures, their rites of passage, their interaction with one another and their encounter with Islam and Christianity. It also holds a unique display of Gule Wamkulu masks.
The mission is the main training centre for woodcarving, and it´s possible to visit the workshop where you will see the carvers holding down the wood they are working on with their feet while they carve. The KuNgoni Art Centre at the mission sells the work from two sites.
Mua Mission is certainly an interesting place and if you would like to spend some time there, the Mission also provide accommodation, either chalets or camping. Prices are 7000 Mk (57 USD) pr room (two charing) or 5000 Mk single. Camping cost 1100 Mk pr tent.
