Owner description: This former government building, an architectural treasure in itself, is now a museum containing some impressive artifacts. Particularly noteworthy is a collection of late 18th and early 19th century Cape furniture.

Museum Schmuseaum, hey! This is the most interesting museum next to the District Six Museum in Cape Town. Here you will understand SA. There are things here I learned about my own country I never knew. Thank you Johan for making it easy to understand.

We visited this museum, it was nice, clean and very interesting. We had a nice conversation in Afrikaans and Dutch.
It was fun!

This is a first class operation with outstanding furnishings. The guides are better at Afrikans than English.

We enjoyed the history and relevance of the exhibitiions, give it a go - its not the most exciting way to spend the day but it is very well thought out and attractive. We liked it a lot!

I expect museums to smell of old wood, and this doesn't disappoint. I felt really at home here. Rather large complex and Americans will understand this.
