It quite a nice museum. It great for everyone in the family if you have a little one your most likely going to do a quick look through the museum until you get to the exhibits that are more interactive.

  • Beautiful museum. There is a wide variety of historical information and equipment to view. Great for the whole family. There are some interactive stands as well and there are lots of planes and tanks to see.

  • The collection here is a lot bigger than I expected. There is also a great mix of South African military vehicles and paraphernalia as well as German and British war collections from the First and Second World Wars. Descriptions are detailed and a lot of care had gone I to curating the exhibions. Definitely a must-do at least once for any local. The tanks were my favorite!

  • In a nutshell, the museum is a niche attraction. Not for the average person. But anyone who has interest in military history will not be disappointed. It's also a fascinating destination for young minds. My biggest gripe is that when I visited it 50 years ago, kids were allowed inside some of the exhibits. This increases the pleasure and interest immeasurably. Unfortunately, this is no longer permitted
