History of Pretoria

One of the best spots in Pretoria to learn more about the History of SA's Capital. And old Boer fort with many symbols and exhibitions from the late 1800s to early 1900s.

Historically very interesting. Shooting the canon at Noon was an experience. It was nice to see how a garrison lived in the old days.

The museum itself is very interesting, giving you a glimpse into the history that transpired. But the ultimate experience is the view from the view points on top of the hill. You can see the whole of Pretoria for miles. There is also wild animals (zebras, buck and deer of all types that wander all over the place. Absolutely incredible.... More

Owned by the City of Tshwane. The museum is not big and the displays are a bit rundown. The view fro the top made up for the big trek.

The 1st time I visited Klapperkop. Was with my Dad, I must have been about 8 to 11 years of age. Now after 40 years I've visited the site again. Well...at least it's still going. But NOT as good as it was when I first visited the museum. The big statue of a South African soldier (1970s & early 1980s).....stands... More

This takes you back to the days you had to leave home and fight for your Country, you can feel the pain and at the same time the Power of a new World Country fighting for its right.

You will not need a guide around this museum as things are well laid out in each of the rooms with lots of explanation and photographs to go alongside the original artefacts. Fascinating and you don't even have to be a military buff to enjoy the visit. The grounds are nice and you can even take a wander past the... More
