Not only is the museum an impressive sight, but it’s also a hub of South African history and heritage. From vintage aircraft to military artefacts, there’s so much on display. And with free entrance, you can take your time and soak up all the sights without any added pressure.
The museum is open from 8am until 1pm, so make sure you arrive early to get the most out of your visit. And if you’re worried about getting peckish, don’t worry – the museum offers a range of snacks and beverages, including their famous German boerewors rolls.
But the real highlight of your visit will undoubtedly be the museum’s team of enthusiastic volunteers. Their passion and big smiles will make you feel right at home and leave you with lasting memories.
