“A nice small museum”
Reviewed June 30, 2011

The Museum is located in a nice 2 storey building in the centre of Bleomfontien. It is far from the largest, but it is efficiently laid out and covers a good combination of local African flora, fauna, geology and history, and other more general items.
The displays are generally models or samples, with clear and interesting facts written on plaques (in both English and Afrikaans), so they are both interesting and educational. The history of Bloemfontein is covered particularly well, as you would expect.
Bloemfontein Museum is an interesting spot to visit. At just 5 rand entrance fee, it will entertain the old and the young for an hour or so.
