Was very informative and nice to share with my children our history. A lot of added information since went there over 16yrs back. Be prepared to spend at least 2 - 3 hours depending on how much detail you read.

A good museum which depicts various perspectives on a very emotional war which left deep scars on a nation. They go to great lengths to present the material as neutral and unbiased as possible. Everything is well-maintained and the staff helpful.

Very nice to visit and experience our history even though it's very sad walking through the garden of remembrance. Just wish we could take photos inside the museum.

This visit was heartbreaking and interesting at the same time. A very well-looked after facility. We could show our kids our heritage. A must visit for famlies.

The Museum has an extensive collection of items associated with the Boer War. There are large paintings, the one of the Boers pinned down in the Modder River Banks under fire from the British is very touching when you consider there were women and children there also. It lead of course to the surrender by General Cronje at the battle of Paadeberg. There is an extensive collection of Handicraft items made by the POW's in overseas Camps to which they were "Banished" namely St Helena, Ceylon, India and Bermuda as well as those made in Camps in South Africa. The Women's Monument depicting two women, one holding a baby is very memorable since the ashes of British woman, Emily Hobhouse who did so much to help those suffering during the war are buried there. The recent addition of the lengthy wall, inscribed with the names of the Women and Children who died in the Concentration Camps during Britain's Scorched Earth Policy when farms were burnt and the Women and Children were herded into Concentration Camps with little of no fresh water or medical care is very memorable ! This certainly does not depict the "Best Period" of British History!!
