About Freedom Park, Pretoria
This is one of the most revered sites in the city, and visiting it is a sobering experience. The park was built to commemorate all those who gave their lives in the formation of South Africa’s freedom. The park’s design draws inspiration from most South African influences. There’s a great 700-metre wall on which are inscribed the names of those who died in major South African conflicts. The freedom park museum offers a deep insight into South Africa’s formation, whether geological, cultural or political. It’ll take quite a while to cover the whole site.
Tourists who visit the place say that they leave feeling humbled. It’s a very touching experience. While you’re here, take note of the Isivivani, the Amphitheatre and the Eternal Flame. Even children come away quite affected by the place.

Freedom Park, Pretoria Reviews
I must say, I enjoyed my tour. A special thanks to Abut'Gift (my tour guide ),what a great experience. I would definitely go there again.
A MUST visit when you go to South-Africa. It's such a shame that so much people go to the apartheid museum (where I also have been), while this museum is much more special. I've never been to such an impressive museum like this. When you come there, all the staff is there for you because hardly any people come to this museum, only because of ignorance. I will hardly recommend to go to the freedom park; you won't believe your eyes.
Fantastic place. Really something for South Africans to be proud of. The entire place is pretty much a work of art. Some really thought provoking installations as well. The venue is clean, modern and safe. We stopped off at Freedom Park after spending some time at the Voortrekker monument. There is a road leading directly from the Voortrekker monument to Freedom park.
Learn more about the history of South Africa and take mind blowing walking, seeing walls with names of those who have been in the struggle. Also a good place to host prestigious events
It needs more upgrade or something. It is kind of boring. There is more to do or see. If there could add jungle gym for the kids or restaurants.
