  • From previous visits I know that this museum is very informative, but these days it is almost never open for visits. The visiting times are not being adhered to. Today, Friday 10 August 2018 at 12:30, I wanted to visit, but I found a locked gate, eventhough the visiting times on the notice board at the gate clearly states that the museum is supposed to be open till 15:30. This is not the first time I find a locked gate. If the museum does not want visitors they should rather close it permanently.
  • Museum is very informative about various wars and battles. The grounds have artillery, armoured vehicles and fighter planes from South Africa‚Äôs history. The kids love going there and playing on all the military installations. It is a relaxing, interesting and safe place to enjoy as a family.
