Quite an interesting and extensive display of the SA Navy. Staff are friendly and helpful. Its worth staying a while to stare at the sexy marines that frequent the premises. Oh, and its free!

We have never been on a submarine and this was a fantastic experience. Book ahead, the tours are limited. Former submariners volunteer as guides and show us around the 'boat' the cramped living quarters, minuscule galley and deadly torpedoes all make interesting viewing. The tour is informative and definitely worthwhile. Combine it with the penguins as a day trip from cape town.

This is a great opportunity to view how the submariner lives, and to participate in the dedication of those who created the museum

The SAS Assegaai, a decommissioned Daphne Class French built diesel-electric submarine is open to the public 7 days a week from 10h30 - 15h00. Tickets are R40 adults and R20 children for a 1 hour tour inside the submarine. Photographs may be taken inside and outside the submarine. The SAS Assegaai, one of three submarines that did active duty for the SA Navy from 1971 - 2003. It is amazing the technology on board that was developed by South Africans during the Apartheid era 30 yrs ago. Tickets can be purchased from HGTS Tours, the official service and transport provider to the SA Naval Museum, at Simon's Town Railway Station. This is the only Submarine Museum in Africa and definitely worth visiting. Admiral Arne Soderlund and his team of ex-submariners will share their experiences with visitors during the 1 hour tour of the submarine.

Best museum experience for all ages. It is the closest you will get to the real experience unless you sign up for the navy. A real proud to be a south african experience. Most recommended daytrip
