Our Visitors Feedback


It was my birthday on the 24th of February 2022 and I decided to spend the day at Ditsong Natural Science museum (my best birthday experience thus far). I would like to thank the museum and your delightful employees, Mr Andros Malakane (geoscience guide) and Mr Tidimalo Moerane for the excellent service. I will never forget that experience, I enjoyed exploring the collections on display and learning about natural sciences. The highlight of the day was the time I spent at the geoscience museum, I honestly didn’t know that rocks were this interesting. That was definitely not my last visit to the museum, keep up the good work. I will recommend this museum to anyone who needs an informative, meaningful, and entertaining relaxed natural sciences learning experience.

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!
