I was really looking forward to visiting this museum, however it was really disappointing. I found there was too much information crammed in and the text and pictures were all quite small and difficult to get near to actually read with a crowd of people. It seemed like the displays were not in any kind of order and it was all a bit thrown together and a bit of a mish mash. I didn't really learn anything new. It may be a different experience with the museum guides who used to be residents there; these are only at certain times. I wouldn't say this is a must if you are only in Cape Town for a short time.
