Time travel to Cape Town 300 years ago...
Visitors are invited to don an 18th Century tricorn hat and step below sea-level for fascinating perspectives of the 17th to 19th Century Cape Town.
On the shoreline, it starts at a time of postal stones, shipwrecks and isolation wards, soldiers and slaves, exiles and explorers, locals and settlers, knechts and convicts. Displays show the result of the excavation work, including a magic carpet and a (wishing) well. Detailed models depict the battery in its heyday, a bird’s-eye view of Cape Town and Table Bay and detailed displays about cannonry. Explore the largest selection of muzzle loaded cannons in the country. Witness the loading and firing of a cannon, fire off a shot, enjoy marching drills and flag raising routines. Where memories are made and pictures shared.
