Bartolomeu Dias Museum Complex, Mossel Bay Reviews
Looks like nothing from outside but once you get in the place is huge. Building upon building holding a wealth of information. A highly recommend a visit but make sure you have a few hours.
The museum is quite spectacular in the sense that it house the replika of the Diaz craft that travelled from Portugal to South Africa. The boat is also open to the public. The museum also hosts various musicals from time to time.
we visited there to see the mail tree which is impressive. we stayed to see the all places and exhibition. the old big ship very nice and gave us a glimpse about the area in the past. try to came early. there is nice coffee in front the entrance.
Nice place with history. The real size replica of the boat that Bartholomeu Dias came with is in the museum.
Was so awesome at Diaz! The ship is a definitely must see!
