South African National Museum of Military History reviews
The museum is well maintained, was nice and quiet, and full of things to look at. So a nice visit in that sense. But, I really struggled to enjoy it because there was so little interpretation... more »
Fantastic. Everything you visit there is a new exhibit. Some of the rarest and best preserved militeria are on display here. The Museum, is well laid out, exhibits are well described, the facilities..... more »
Incredible experience. From tanks to planes. You name it they have it. Take a detailed tour though some of histories engineering marvels. Museum is conveniently located and affordable. R 30 entrance for kids and double for adults. Able to actually get into many of the vehicles. Great day out for the family.
If you are a historian or just like to visit museums in general and are interested in history you need to visit this place. You will spend hours on end walking through the museum looking around and be breathless at the amount of time and effort spend to exhibit all there is to see. Would highly recommend to visit at least once.
