Situated in the Company’s Garden, the Iziko South African Museum is the local natural and cultural history museum. It holds more than 1.5 million items ranging from fossils and Stone Age tools to clothing and artefacts. The African dinosaur is a highlight, particularly with the kids, as is the rock art display. Rotating temporary exhibitions are also on show. Make sure you visit the Whale Well, where among the giant whale bones and life-size casts of marine creatures, musical recitals are often held.
