“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.

“History & Fossils”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

This Museum will take you back in times of what Bloemfontein looked like in the 1800. The Fossils on display is out of this world and the showcasing of different animals and history. Need to view this
