  • This museum is very informative concerning the early trade routes. It gives you insight of early technology and the way seafarers lived. Also available is a small aquarium and a few areas used back in the day, like the postal tree. A nice feature is that you can board a replica of the boat/ship that was used back in the day.

  • Never knew this place existed. So informative and well laid out. A bit of a hike at times, but well worth it! Loved the Maritime Museum as well!

  • 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.

  • Interesting museum. Mossel bay has taken a part of our history and created a special exhibition.

  • Very nice. Interesting But needs guidance
