The National Museum – a natural history, cultural history and art museum – was established in 1877 and is a Declared Cultural Institution, which resorts under the Department of Arts and Culture and is governed by a council.
The mission of the National Museum is to provide heritage resources and an enjoyable experience to all people through quality research, conservation, education and exhibitions.
In my opinion the best thing to do in Bloemfontein. Entrance fee is extremely cheap but what u get to see I found amazing, especially the archeological excavations from millions of years ago I found fascinating. In the first floor you can walk through Bloemfontein the way it was a hundred years ago. Very well done!
Excellent visit for a family. The museum exceeded my expectations. It is well organised and well informing visit as well. The kids loved it and I enjoyed it as well. It is worthy a visit or two.
I did not know what to expect of this museum but I was pleasantly surprised. I really loved it because it has a lot of life size sculptures, displays and some painting that inform you of the history of the entire Southern African tribes and Bloemfontein too. We got a guide who explained the exhibitions to us. I am a history buff so I was really happy. I cannot wait to return.
