WINTER HOLIDAYS AT THE MUSEUM: Just like the much needed rain, the Cape received its fair share of winter holiday visitors during the June/July school holidays. Clear sunny winter days were interspersed by traditional rain squalls, but the conditions did not deter the visitors to stop over at the South African Naval Museum in Simon’s Town. A total number of 1,070 visitors visited during the month of June. Even more heartwarming were the positive comments from those that visited, as reflected on Google, TripAdvisor and the museum’s visitor book. Amongst the many visitors were the family of the legendary Captain Jack Netterberg (the Navy’s first “ice-pilot”). A lovely letter of thanks and appreciation was received a few weeks after the visit.
The museum is open seven days a week from 09:30 to 15:30.
