  • The naval museum is very good, it has uniforms, weapons, equipment and photos of the South African navy from its origins until the last years. Its staff is friendly and helpful. We wanted to visit the submarine "Assegai" but it was recently moved to the port, where the public cannot access it. Anyway in one part of the museum you can visit a replica of the command room of a submarine that was used to train its crew.

  • It's really inspiring to show off interesting items. If you like history, I'll make you go there. A wonderful sea otter. Workers are willing to share their knowledge. The children love to come here. It's well worth it!

  • I wish I'd gone here sooner. The museum has such a rich history regarding the navy and south Africa itself. There are pictures, actual objects, and tons of explanations to keep you absorbed into learning. It is free to enter and the receptionist is super friendly. It is also suitable for all ages.
  • No entry fee, just donation box. Interesting experience. Wish the overall area was more interactive, would be nice to have a guided walk out to the F147 & Submarine in the Harbour. Lovely welcoming staff. Cool place
