Our Visitors Feedback


I’ve been a regular visitor to the museum over the years, and I’ve always been impressed with the various displays and the quality of the exhibits, both indoors and outdoors. I came back earlier this week for the first time in about 8 years, and I was blown away by the improvements and upgrading that had taken place since my last visit. Enclosing many of  the larger exhibits that had previously been displayed outdoors, will offer them better protection from the weather, and the new layout inside the halls was even better than it had been before. I was happy to see how additions to the collection had displayed the more recent conflicts pre-1994, and married them in such a way,that they gave a more complete picture of our nations history in an inclusive way! I will certainly be back, and I’ve already recommended to dozens of friends and family, that they make a visit. Congratulations to all staff!

Yesterday, Tuesday 18th May, our Group of Pensioners enjoyed a most enjoyable trip around the Crater. I wish to place on record our thanks to ALL the Staff for the top class welcome we were given. The Picnic area was tidy and the Braai grids freshly cleaned for us. Thanks once again for the top class visit and will definitely visit again soon.
