Lovely little visit with a basic but informative museum. Lady at reception seems to know a great deal and was very helpful with questions we had. R31 entrance fee. Go visit!

What a great spot to view Africa's southern most point. Not much of a museum but the view is incredible and well worth the climb (if you're not squeamish of heights).

Make sure you climb to the top of the lighthouse to get a Panoramic view of Cape Agulhas. The view is breath taking. The winds are really strong especially at the top of the light house.
