This Museum, is seriously under rated. Spent an hour here, and thoroughly enjoyed it. We visited on a Sunday, when there we no tours been offered, however we had the leisure of walking through at our own pace. The staff that where there, were extremely informative, and very helpful. Definitely worth a visit.
Simons Town houses the South African Naval Museum which is free to enter and you can put donations in a box. It is well maintained and quite huge. For people more interested in Navy and its history, the look and feel of equipment used in navy etc, this place will be more amazing. We spent about 40 minutes or so.
What a fantastic place, especially for a family. Collections of ship models and parapaanallia for sure. But also wonderful examples of working naval guns, anti-aircraft weapons, anti-submarine depth charges and defenses, a helicopter, a working model of a ship's bridge, all sorts of things. Really put the idea of a working ship and its equipment right at your fingertips. Highly... 更多

They have quite the impressive collection! We were thrilled with how much they have to offer - room after room of great stuff. We were also very impressed with the staff - they were very helpful and informational!
I took my two young sons here and we really enjoyed strolling around. They have a substantial amount of memorabilia, models, and artefacts on display and its really interesting. Although quick low-key, there are a few interactive displays which delighted my little guys. Worth a visit if you have time to spare.
A great museum - larger than we expected - (free - or donation) good layout, with interesting photos and memorabilia of the S A Navy. Great even if you are not a military history enthusiast. A warm passionate welcome - which portrayed itself even in the displays - and great comradeship in the displays - which a person who has... 更多
