Situated in the city hall, the museum is one of the oldest and most popular museums in South Africa. It is the only one taken by the government and therefore is very well maintained. Various research and education programmes are organized with a particular emphasis on biodiversity conservation and ecology. The City Hall galleries features a large collection of small and large mammals, a huge collection of African birds, including a fossilized egg of an Elephant Bird, 750,000 identified species of insects on earth today, and a variety of reptiles and amphibians in their natural habitats. The museum is also renowned for the realistic Tyrannosaurus rex (T-Rex) model and the 100-year-old near-complete Dodo skeleton which is the second-most complete specimen in the world after the one in Mauritius.
The Museum is located in the city hall. You can easily get a taxi or a minibus that will take 10 R to reach the city hall.
