Nice military history.

I went up here with my uncle who has lived in pretoria for many years but didn't know about this place. It was very cool to learn about the afrikaner history of the area.

Walk into the past with a visit to Fort Klapperkop. Smell the cordite as your mind wanders into the past. A great place to visit

Very interesting and historical place with many items displayed. Made me feel a bit sad and overwhelmed thinking of the history of our country. Just walk through and learn and enjoy the position of this place.

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

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.

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
