We were a group attending a seminar, and we could stroll around the museum, and even touch all the exhibits. The Bolts farm exhibit is very interesting.

If you have an interest in history and science this is a place to go. It is situated in Pretoria CBD opposite the city hall. You really get a feel of history when you park and walk in. The museum's layout is well thought out....More
