This is a very interesting museum, with an extremely informative video presentation to explain the battle, which should be viewed before going down to the site.

This is a very interesting, fun and informative place. The historical Battlefield bit is interesting but my favourite was the Glass Museum. It was stunning. My husband had to drag me away. The onsite restaurant The Miners' Rest was lovely. They do an amazing buffet on Sundays - real food -- for only R100. A tasty bargain.
