“Update your knowledge”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

Museum Africa is an worthwhile place to visit if you want to update your knowledge of South Africa History, Culture and Geography. Take your time and visit the past, present and think about the future! Kids might find it boring!

“I enjoyed it”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

I like history and also geology, so I found it very good.

Large historical building.

We got in just 30 minutes before closing time, so went in for a fast tour.

It is free.

Reading other reviews, I guess if they start charging a modest entrance fee, funds could be collected to improve museum.

Overall, I am glad that I went here as part of my SA visit. Learned a lot.

“Poorly set out”
Reviewed 17 May 2013

This museum is free, and just as well. The exhibits are poorly set out, there does not seem to be any chronological order, and the best part of the whole place is the 100 year old Market building itself.
Disappointing, on the whole

“If you don't have anything else to do”
Reviewed 4 April 2013

There is no charge for this museum. It felt like we were the only people there...sounds good right? Not so much. It was like a huge warehouse that had a few thing to see. It wasn't bad, just not good. The geology museum is here as well but don't get too excited...unless you love rocks and taking quizzes....you'll see if you go....the red bus takes you there.

“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.
