  • This is an important site. The sculpture is amazing. I love the way in which it comes into view. I would like more tourist activity: a shop, a better collection of artefacts, something more to see...  more »
  • Quite interesting and informative. Found the entrance fee a bit too much R100 per adult with only the museum and mandela sculpture outside. Overall it's good to go and visit.  more »
  • There is so much history to read and very little room to do it without disturbing the flow. A bigger place is needed to house all the information in a way that someone who needs to know about the history can take their time going through it. The outside surroundings are neat and well kept. I suspect that the poles of the sculpture needs a bit of realignment in certain areas so that it appears like when we see the older pictures here. Otherwise it is an experience worth having.
  • This part of our South African history and heritage. It is wonderfully exhibited to be enjoyed by the visitors. I recommend that everyone must make an effort to visit this place. Hopefully the museum will be opened as it was being finished off.
