    A very safe spot to walk around and enjoy the shops and restaurants. We went their for lunch at one of the many choices, and then went back for a dinner later in our trip. We did some of our shopping at the Waterfront shops that seemed to have a lot of what we were looking for. We felt completely safe in that area.

    The day I decided to explore this aquarium was raining very hard. This truly all-weather destination did not disappoint. Spent a lot of time checking out the fascinating species of the ocean.

    The Cape Town Diamond Museum was an awesome experience! The staff are friendly and very professional. Our guide, Wesley, made the whole tour so interesting - 5 stars for Wesley! Will definitely be back with more friends!

    A small museum that requires a lot of reading to get the full story but is worth it for the sense of culture and the historical photographs. The museum contains a number of photographs and testimonials that describe the people and culture of the area. The area was neglected by the government for a number of years and had degraded to a bit of a crowded slum. The government essentially leveled the area over a number of years – dismantling the neighborhood and sending the population to different townships. To this day the area is mostly open space and considered “salted earth”.

    Historic and well done exhibit showcasing where the first heart transplant occurred. This was a monumental moment in modern healthcare and the tour is well done!

    We enjoyed our tour to the Jewish Museum. We learned quite alot of history involving the jewish culture in Cape Town. The building is incredibly beautiful. The Guide Rick was also very knowledgeable.

    My husband is an artist and sculptor and will always enjoy a gallery visit and I am happy to accompany him. What made this visit so good was the tour and talk by the in house art historian Rory.
    With an encyclopaedic knowledge of the building and the art he kept the group captivated for an hour. If you visit the gallery do attend the tour.
    The building is the star attraction and as an old granary seeing the roof where the old silos where is fascinating. The cafe is great food and good value.

    This centre is world class with superb venues, coffee shops, parking areas, service, toilets, restaurants and conference venues. We attended the WTM Africa 2024 exhibition and I was utterly impressed with the venue’s capacity to handle large crowds quickly. The restaurants offered affordable coffee and meals. Ideal for a world class event.

    This is a very interesting museum and a great way to get educated about slavery over the last 800 years. There are a lot of horrible stories, and it is hard to believe the human race can behave as outlined in this museum. It also has hope in it, as it talks of the people freed, how they received their new identities, and the impact they had in their communities. There also exhibits related to apartheid which are educational.

    You need to allow at least 2 hours for this.

    Some advice to the museum curators… PLEASE do a much better job of guiding visitors through the exhibits in the correct direction, I learned a lot… but it was very scattershot because there was no logical way of following the exhibits in order in nearly the entire museum.

    Mainly a natural history museum with a planetarium. Good place to spend an afternoon (we were there on a windy rainy day) and contains some updated and modern exhibits about human evolution and the local wildlife. The more ancient part of the museum is a collection of stuffed specimens that are only remarkable for the size of the exhibits vs modern day examples and a sense of old history.

    A beautiful cathedral. We visited for the Christmas day service. The liturgy and music were fantastic. The archbishop gave a great sermon. Would recommend.

    The rollercoaster of emotions one experiences along your journey through the museum is down to the professionalism in the display, layout and information. This is how a museum should be.
