Visited as part of a city tour and very informative visit. It helped we had a guide to take us through the whole edifice. A great introduction to the Dutch influence on South Africa.

Great monument and surrounding gardens. Always a pleasure to visit and walk around, and read the history inside. Avoid Saturday mornings as park run is held there, although, that is a lot of fun too.

We frequent the monument, both for music events (Park Acoustics monthly) and bigger concerts. The venue has never disappointed. Beautiful museum, you can sense the rich history and knowledge of amazing events that have transpired, both inspiring the building of the monument, and the time to come.

I took my 17 year old son to see this old monument. Always good to look back at history. He was fascinated with the building. It is well looked after. Neat and tidy. Definitely worth a visit.

I usually don't write bad reviews but I was rather disappointed by the fact that I had to figure the monument by myself: the receptionist was friendly but it would be nice to have someone to explain

The first place we visited after arriving in South Africa and it was a good choice. Great views from the top (there is a lift) also wonderful tapestry in the basement. Not to be missed. Cafe was good too.
