Archaeology Ruins / Museum
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.
- Meander between and over the Archaeology Ruins of the Fort that has been buried for 140 years below sea-level on the sand of the original Cape Town shoreline,
- You will find pottery and glass and objects displayed in the Magic Carpet that were used by the people who were here, who were they?,
- Models of the shoreline & battery, with large graphic information panels for you to time-travel to what it looked like during the 17th and 18th Century,
- See the Rocket Lifesaving Apparatus used at the “Cape of Storms / Good Hope”,
- Model Ships and Cannon displays with cannon balls and detailed models about how to fire a cannon and information about other Forts like The Castle of Good Hope.
Where memories are made and pictures shared.
