Good old school feel to all the things they have. Fascinated by the cars available but they are not being maintained. Materials were dusty and there were poor customer service.

It cost $10.00 to get into the museum, which I thought was a bit steep. It was very old fashioned, with lots of labels to read. Some of it was in such darkness that it needed a torch to read the lables! The facts were...More

It's a good affordable outing. Made for a great stop en route visiting the Bvumba. There' s a lot of colonial history.. I would have loved to have more info and artifacts related to the histories of the various Manica people groups.

Mutare is my favorite place in Zimbabwe. The mountains are breathe taking. Additional are the antiques of historical and artistic treasure which are a master piece.

A wide variety of pre-independent Zimbabwe weapons on show. The canon outside is a clear invitation to fans of history and warfare. The steam engine is a must see

If you take the time to really absorb what you are looking at, this is wonderful place. The displays on the colonial history are facinating so take time to read what you look at, especially at the photographs and annotations. Then the natural science displays,...More

It is well maintained although a little dated. It has some good collections of old cars and other vehicles plus displays on pre-history of Zimbabwe. Definately worth a visit
