South African National Museum Of Military History - Review
The South African National Museum of Military History was built as a national souvenir and preserve to commemorate the historical contributions of the South African nationals during the World War II. The premises of the Museum bear a monumental memorial, and a memorial foundation stone. The exhibitions of the Museum are spread over numerous specific sections.
It includes a German aircraft hall housing the fighter-crafts Messerschmitt versions Bf 109 and M2 262, along with a Focke-Wulf Fw 190. A special hall named the GE Brink Hall houses historic crafts of the Royal Aircraft Factory S.E.5, and Anglo Boer Warships. The park section named the Dan Pienaar Gun Park features the display of the gunnery used during the World War.
Various components of the artillery, including ammunitions from the Anglo-Zulu Wars, and other artillery are exhibited in the FB Adler Hall. The premises also include a large hall which houses the naval equipments and marine artillery.

South African National Museum Of Military History, Johannesburg Reviews
Absolutely a must visit place. If you have an interest in war and memorabilia to the incredible engineering needed to make all the machines used in wartime. Incredible firearms collection that you would struggle to find any place else. Would have loved to share pictures but I was reprimanded by security as I lifted up my phone for some digital memories
The South African Museum of Military History is a must see for those interested in military history. The displays take you through multiple eras of weaponry, wars and technologies. There is a display of tanks, aircrafts, and more from different eras. The only negative is that the display has not changed over three visits. But the displays are so big that one cannot take in everything in one visit. If you like swords, handguns, rifles, assault rifles, tanks, canons, history, medals, uniforms, or anything of the like, then go!
The fact that there is a ME-262 at this museum is a good enough reason to visit! Lots of World war 2 aircraft, tanks, weapons and equipment, as well as things from wars after. Very reasonably priced and kid friendly! Make sure to bring comfortable shoes and water.
Very interesting place to visit. I think very under rated and deserves a lot more attention. There is so much to see here and the staff are super friendly. I attended a conference here and had a bit of free time so had a look around. For any conference this place really adds dimension and makes for a great setting. Definitely recommend checking it out.
Want to learn about S.A. at war. It's very comprehensive. Totally underrated.
