  • You could feel the history of mankind, in a modern building, very clean. Worth visiting once admission is certainly reasonably found, went to Harare if there is.

  • The place has some really interesting pieces that will open your eyes to the human sciences world. If you want to just spend a day learning and getting exposure on what the human sciences world has to offer this is the place to be. The collection is huge and it will definitely interest anyone with an open mind. Better take your phone for the selfies and a bottle of water. Great service, in need of reinvention though.
  • The museum is a great way to show us about history. They need to constantly upgrade it
  • Its a gd place spend an amazing day
  • Simple, nice and refreshing to take kids and learn some of Zimbabwe's fine heritage. In need of more material and a bit facelift.
  • I actually learned a couple of things, lovely experience. The place does need some renovation.
