Graaff Reinet - The Military History Museum
Attraction details
Reviewed 11 October 2017

We were most impressed with the displays and annotations. Good coverage of so many wartime encounters and such a lot of artifacts from such a sparsely populated area. Graaff Reinet certainly made a worthwhile contribution when asked for both military support and memorabilia.

The museum deals mainly with district's involvement in the Anglo-Boer War and the two World Wars.

The limited scope did not bother me, but I would have liked something on earlier conflicts in the district.

Tucked away behind Urquhart House. I had to ask for a key to enter. A wealth of information on local involvement in conflicts of the 20th C.

Graaff Reinet has many museums and rightly so, it is an area of much importance in the country's history.The Anglo Boer War especially so, it set the pace for 20th Century with its many dramatic changes.The Museum does igt a disservice.

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.
