Reviewed 12 August 2015

The Anglo Boer War information was a little sketchy and assumes some prior knowledge. I was very impressed with the story of the midlands units that served in WWII.

I agree with the other reviewer about a lack of information on Gideon Scheepers and exactly why he was executed. Little explanation. The uniforms were interesting along with the various artifacts used by the soldiers. Some displays were quite moving.

Come on!! You guys can do better than this! A great set of stories to be told - but none of them really explained. Not once is the story of Gideon Scheepers properly told although there are some great items around the story of his capture, trial and execution. We had to google it to understand his significance while walking around the room. The same with the second world war and the role of the Midlands Regiment. Someone needs to ask a retired history teacher to spend some time here to turn a bit of a mess into something quite special

Thoroughly loved museum displays write ups and information was clear and descriptive though lacking personnel to explain any questions along the way for missing items.

Was slightly saddened all 3 museums opened public holidays and weekends except this one and the library - these I would suspect are days people usually in town.

Missed last 3 rooms due to lunch shutdown, but will have to catch next vacation. Promptness is fortunately a quality appreciated by the staff.
