  • 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.

  • What an amazing museum. The artifacts are outstanding. Very well kept . Immaculate and the attention to detail is great. Lovely day out.

  • This was so educational for me and the family the kids loved to see in witch trucks and how the military was in the oldendays. There is also a playground for the kids and you can take your piekniek baskets in as well to have a fantastic time. This is a place for all to see and learn new things. Old to the little ones all will love and enjoy it.

  • Great bit of history. Well balanced representation of all wars / struggles. Almost too much information and staff friendly / helpful.

  • A real treasure hidden in JHB , great to see so much of our history an from different countries . Only maybe need a place to get something to eat or to drink
