Just found this website - it's an incredible resource of information. Apologies if you've seen it already, but if you haven't, then it's definitely worth a look!

To everyone not being to the museum before, go and treat yourself and visit it. It is absolutely awesome!

A good visit, but a facelift needed.

Does the museum have an official website?
I cannot seem to access the provided links.

Nevertheless, if someone working there could relay the following information, I would appreciate it.
I visited the museum recently and was impressed with the vast collection to be viewed there. It was an enjoyable experience.
However, I feel the museum needs a facelift in terms of the interaction it provides and the technology on display.
How about some computers with touch-screens providing more information on some of the minerals, some pictures of mining, or the areas where it it present etc etc.
Pushing a button that lights a green light showing a bird's name isnt as amusing as it was 20 years ago.
I feel the museum is an asset to Pretoria and a visit is worthwhile. However, please look at the interaction and technology available there and keep it up to an international standard.
