“We enjoyed the museum”
Reviewed 4 April 2013

Some of the things on display were a little random but we enjoyed our visit. However the Museum at Wits Uni is much better I love that museum.

“Could use an upgrade but worth a visit”
Reviewed 7 January 2013

Could use some modern multimedia / interactive exhibits. Gives a decent history of Johannesburg. I've been a few times, mainly for the temporary exhibitions which have been excellent.

“Museum or junk yard of odd things”
Reviewed 29 November 2012

Never seen a museum that feels more like a collection of junk than a museum with a purpose.
Why is it called museum africa if whats on show its more of a collection of random things without a purpose

“This is South Africa for real.”
Reviewed 26 October 2012

Take time out and experience the past and get a glance of history, heritage and the evolution of this wonderful country. This will really give you an idea of the diversity and cultures of South Africa.
