Ditsong National Museum of Military History

  22 Erlswold Way, Saxonwold ,   Rosebank & The Parks          +27 11 646 5513     08 Jan 2024

The fascinating displays here not only reflect historical aspects of warfare, but also illustrate technological developments. Two historic Bellman Hangars house a variety of thematic displays that cover key events including the Anglo-Zulu War, the Anglo-Boer War, South Africa’s role in the First and Second World Wars, resistance movements that fought against Apartheid such as Umkhonto we Sizwe (also known as 'MK', the armed wing of the African National Congress), as well as medicine in war, the development of combat uniforms and equipment and the development of small arms. An impressive range of military vehicles that you are able to climb into makes this an even more interactive experience.

The Ditsong National Museum of Military History is one of the stops on the City Sightseeing bus Green tour, which starts at The Zone@Rosebank and connects to the Red City bus tour at Constitution Hill.
