You are also afforded a glimpse into the life in the concentration and also prisoner-of-war camps.
A visit to the War Museum is an absolute necessity for anyone who wants to understand the history of South Africa.
To be an institution of excellence whereby the inclusivity and suffering of all communities during the Anglo-Boer War are depicted, thus propagating the message that negotiation is preferable to war.
