The place is neat and tidy, staff is friendly. Exhibitions are on world standard. This place is situated in a quiet farm within the suburbs of Rivonia where the High Command of the Mkonto Wesizwe used to hide and operate from.

This is museum where you really touch detailed history. Interesting documentation of living hidden and police raid with photoes and stories. Not at all as massive as Apartheid Museum, but somehow touched us more. Here also free photographing - and much friendlier staff!

Sorry it's taken a long time to answer - it 's either going to be relevant or not. An hour is not really enough time to absorb yourself in it's complete history. If you just want a quick walk round that's fine, but there... More
