    This little museum has so much to offer and is so worth visiting. We learnt so much and it was a wonderful hour spent. Interesting to know that even Bonaparte and Darwin were in Simons Town.

    Must go back again and again and you'll see something "new" each time. Only R 10 entrance. Lots of different types of toys from over many years collected by the friendly owner. A must visit but please parents see that your young kids behave inside.

    Visiting this decommissioned submarine was a great outing for my son and I. Very informative talk and history of the sub well covered. Super interesting to learn how submariners lived.

    I've been to Simons Town before and never knew about this museum. I visited the toy museum and accidentally ended up at this museum that is in close proximity of the toy museum. I never realised that people were evicted from their homes in the apartheid area in Simons Town. I only knew about District 6. Our guide was most friendly and helpful. She shared so much information with us in the short time that we spent with her. She is super passionate about her families history. The photos and displays are very interesting. I recommend that everyone should visit this museum to understand the history of our beautiful country so much better. Well worth a visit.
