It's a nice place for the kids to visit and learn about the history. Our son enjoyed the different scene set-ups.

We always visit this museum when we are in the area, the kids love it. Very informative and a pity more peopledoes not visit. It is evident that there is a lack of funding which is a pity, so worthwhile a visit

A museum thats very well maintained. Very interesting exhibits. The chance to walk onto the ship and to get a glimpse of what the early seafarers lives entailed is really amazing

Awesome visit

It was an eye opener to see the size of ships 15th century explorers were using to sail through the rough seas and such long trips. The place is clean with Covid-19 protocols enforced on site.

Bartholomeu Diaz Museum - A visit into the seafarers lives
Feb 2020
It is nice and quiet and you have time to reflect on what was before us. The ship is the main attraction and for visitors to walk through is a very good experience.

Important for South Africa

If this is no. 5 of 32 the rest must be pretty ropey. This museum is important for SA and the replica ship pretty impressive. The crews must have been mad to sail that far in such a tiny ship. The rest of the museum didn't hold that much for me except how they got the ship into the museum.

Important place in SA history

Excellent museum with lots of different exhibits. The Caravelle (boat) is very interesting as are the items around it. Oldest "post office" in SA. Not an expensive visit. Something for everyone.

Really enjoyed the Bartolomeu Dias hall Maritime museum). The replica of the ship (Caravel) he arrived in the bay in 1488 on display is a must visit. Great little coffee shop there too.

I started at the granary and shell museum. The latter was so interest that I ran out of time for the Diaz museum. Just had a quick walk through the Diaz museum.
Beautifully maintained garden and buildings.
