You will travel through time to the big bird experience. The airplanes are great and the Museum building is interesting too. You can see steward uniforms and SAA serving utensils. Also you can see pictures from the early era of SA aviation.

Small museum but packed with lots of saa memorabilia. Tour guide was knolagable. A sit in the flight simulator given a quick tour over the controls makes it interesting to see how much went into flying

A rugged museum with many attractions The history of SAA is well demonstrated in the exhibits. For those who can still remember the flights around Africa and the landings at Las palma and Ile de Sal it will be nostalgic.
