Unexpectedly very interesting!!
Mar 2021 • Couples
I went to this museum a bit skeptic as the website was terrible. However I was very surprised! The house of the museum itself is really interesting and all the things exposed provide great and interesting information. There is a wildlife section/natural museum side and then a lot of history starting from the bushmen to the second world war.
I highly recommend it!

Great little museum
Jan 2020
Some excellent displays in this quiet little museum and very well laid out. It covers the wildlife, and early man right up to modern day wars. Not expensive to visit and somewhere to pass a good few hours just soaking up the history of Kimberley. Recommend a visit in your in the area.

Nice but expected more

Beautiful house, just expected more. You can see they have a tight budget but there is much more rhat can be done to this museum, everything is there, more focus on the inside will go a long way.

An Interesting Museum

This museum leads one through the history of Kimberley and natural elements in a systematic and interesting way. Sadly, though we could find no cafe there.

SA history

Good to see details of SA history and that of the Kimberley area. Sadly though, looking a bit tacky with lack of maintenance

Really enjoyed the museum, can highly recommend a visit to this historical place. Not very pricey, pity the coffee shop has closed.

This museum has it all, starting from the history of mankind in Africa, through the colonial days, the Boer war, followed by South Africa’s involvement in both world wars…

A good description if the history of Kimberley and setting the diamond days in a wider context but the advertised cafe was non existent and there was nowhere to sit. Impressive building.

A step back in time

My first thoughts were about how spectacular this place must have been a 100 years ago. The majestic staircase is like a scene from a movie, made me wish I could turn back time...

The museum was named after a previous mayor of Kimberleyand was once a hotel. It reflects all flora and fauna of the region through the time span from the worlds formation and archealogical sites that have produced amazing finds around the world. A good and interesting visit
