Well laid out but a little repeating of some parts of the story. A well researched and explained museum

When you are interested in the history of early Southe Africa this is worth a visit. Interesting and sometimes touching.

“Worth a visit if you have time to spare”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

Whilst not one of the best attractions in the town it will help to pass away at least a hour for a brief visit and should not be missed.

The atmosphere is not outstanding but then many museums are like that.

It does help give one an insight into the history.

Apart from that one cannot say much.

I have added a picture of the Huguenot Statue which stands at the entrance to the town and is also worth seeing.
