“What a lovely and educational museum”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Free entrance on public holidays.
Amazing exhibits on fossils, indigenous people. Animals, minerals and history of Bloemfontein including old shops and stores - bit scary and dark for little lids but fascinating for adults.

The museum has an interesting section on the history of Bloemfontein with nice exhibitions and old photos. Children will find the animal section interesting.
