South African Museum and Planetarium Reviews
More info about South African Museum and Planetarium
It’s little wonder that the South African Museum and Planetarium in Cape Town is such a popular stop on the hop on-hop off bus route; both the museum and the planetarium are located under one roof. The South African Museum is the country’s oldest, having opened its doors in 1825 and with well over a million exhibits collected, displayed and rotated over the years, it’s reasonable to expect a world-class facility filled with the most interesting and rarest of items. And if you tire of the natural history and science stuff, you can pop down the hall to watch a celestial display at the planetarium.
Exhibits to look out for at the museum are the 4-storey whale well with complete whale skeletons suspended from the ceiling including that of a blue whale, nautical displays, a discovery room for children, life sized Megaladon jaws, mounted mammals and birds of the region, fossil dioramas and African dinosaurs.
