South African National Museum of Military History
The South African National Museum of Military History comprises one of the most comprehensive collections pertaining to South Africa's role in various armed conflicts over the years. Aircraft, armored carriers, artillery, small arms, uniforms and war art are all on display, documenting the country's military involvement throughout the world. The museum's shop sells refreshments and an impressive range of books. Free video shows for visitors are offered on weekends and public holidays, while the action playground is sure to keep children entertained. A reference library, conference and function facilities are also available.
This is a great museum with well maintained exhibits which range from 1st and 2nd World War aircraft and armor to uniforms to the equipment used by the SADF (South African Defence Force) until recently.

Aside from the above, a visit is time well spent, and the entrance fee is very reasonable.
