This is one of the best kept museums in Gauteng and is well worth a visit, particularly if you have even a glancing interest in the wars involving South African forces. The museum complex adjoins the Johannesburg Zoo in Saxonwold, and looks out onto the magnificent Edwin Luytens neo-classical moment to the dead of the 2nd Anglo-Boer War. The museum is also a great place to bring children (not too young) because the museum has a couple of exhibits, including tanks and planes, where kids are actively encouraged to climb into the vehicles after they've oogled the other exhibits. The wars that are covered with exhibits range from the Anglo-Boer conflicts of the late 19th Century, through the two world wars, to the "Border War" of 1966-1989. The displays are based on the museum's extensive collection of military hardware but are supplemented with dioramas, and information displays.
