The ladies here gave a brief history of the Cape, they took my family on a walking tour, there is a video, they teach you about the burrowing owls which I find fascinating! There was no fee, and they do accept donations.

Took my 15 yoa grandson. We both totally enjoyed ourselves. Very informaive, if you take the time to look and READ. Only thing we both would have loved if they had something to explain WHY or WHAT brought about each war. Still very enjoyable

If you reside in the Cape and are interested in history, this is entertaining. There isn't much ancient history to a place less than 65 years old, but I found this a good way to spend a rainy afternoon and would recommend taking your children there as well.
