Bartolomeu Dias Museum Complex, Mossel Bay Reviews
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.
Probably doing the best they can with the funding they have, but can be modernised to have a much greater impact
Very interesting place steeped in history. The main attraction is a replica Portuguese caravelle, built to the original plans of the actual vessel that carried Bartholomew Diaz around the Cape. It is housed now indoors and depicts the fascinating bistody of maritime exploration arround Africa. The museum complex also houses a large sea shell collection. There is a post bix in form of a shoe with a lo g story. Its still in use ANd whwn you put in your postcards they get stamped with a special postal stamp.
It is interesting how the boats looked many years ago. Do yourself a favor and visit this Museum.
Baie netjies en skoon. Opvoedkundige ondervinding. Van die tanks in die akwarium benodig name vir die visse daarin. Bekostigbaar.
