I was in the Voortrekker Monument for other reasons and decided to walk around at Fort Schanskop.
If you like Afrikaans History, then this might be fun. But it felt like the museum was set up in the 70's and has seen no change since then.
The views of Pretoria are worth a visit and the surrounding bushveld is beautiful...
If you like military history, this is a must visit. If you enjoy great views, consider the fort as it is ideally placed at the top of one of the highest spots in Pretoria.
Be prepared to walk a bit, and take the time to read the history of the place. If you can get someone to show you around...
I didn't expect much of Fort Schanskop. We went there after a fair which was held on the grounds and we are so glad we did it.
The museum is very well kept and the fort beautifully restored. Now and then they have small shows in the little amphitheater inside the fort - definitely worth a visit.
The information is...
Well kept facilities. Good presentation of the fort's history. You can imagine what the area looked like a 120 years ago and what the strategic advantage was of the location and camouflage of the fort. Nice views of the Voortrekker Monument and the city of Pretoria.
