It is a unique Monument which commemorates the Pioneer history of Southern Africa and the history of the Afrikaner and is situated in a beautiful setting.

Great place to visit with great architecture and animals. They have a service on 16 December each year to commemorate a huge historical event in South African history. The building was designed so that the sun shines on a specific place within the building in 16 December each year!

I have chosen the Wall of rememberance on the Voortrekker Monument grounds as my final resting place and am proud of the beautifully kept reserve. For visitors keen on history this is a must see Monument when in Pretoria.

Clean and solid history in stone.
Needs support as it seems no assistance from other sources.
Pleasant outing

Cool type of museum. Very pretty garden and the top has a great view. There’s a restaurant to eat at and horse riding near.
