This is a go to place for people to learn about the history of South Africa, cultural beliefs and how freedom came about. How many wars took place and how they decide to reconcile and fetch all the struggle icons spirits and bring them back to their home land.

The park is beautiful, but to get the most out of your experience, I highly recommend taking a tour. I went with South African and American colleagues and our guide was impartial and gave thoughtful answers to our many questions. My one regret is not leaving enough time to explore the museum more. If you are going to Pretoria, and especially if you plan to visit the Voortrekker Monument, it’s a must.

Would have given this a 5 but no restaurant on a Sunday and Saturday pretty much sucked because we were pretty thirsty. All in all a super interactive and well put together display. I loved the history which had a lot of dates and physical evidence. The media was well put together and captured me. Staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating. Security guards showed us exactly where we needed to be. Pleasant way to spend a couple hours. Enjoyed it

If you have an interest in "the struggle" then you may find this an interesting place to visit. However, if your time is limited, there are many other places nearby that are much more interesting
