“Hermanus Highlight-Private Military Museum”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

I can definitely recommend the Soldiers Memorial Museum to anyone visiting Hermanus. The museum has one of the finest collections of military artifacts on the continent and the owner adds a personal touch with tours explaining the history behind the items that are on display. There is also a room dedicated to Teddy Bears which makes it a very family friendly place to visit. The restaurant located right next to the museum is also a great place to stop and relax if you want to get away from the busy tourist packed streets. I have visited the Museum a few times and will definitely be back again as there is simply too much to take in on one visit. Simply fantastic!

“Best Private Military Museum in South Africa !”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

With out a doubt one of the finest private military museums you will ever see !! I have been in many military museum around the world and this one would rank in my top 5 list . I recommend a personal tour with the owner to explain all the artifacts on show. The owners restaurant and museum are located on the same premises. After an amazing home cooked breakfast I spent the next 2 hours admiring the military collection.
