Ditsong National Museum of Military History | Johannesburg

The mission of the Ditsong National Museum of Military History is to be a memorial for all the South Africans who have died in large-scale conflicts, and to preserve our nation’s military history for future generations. The museum serves to remind all of us of the great sacrifices, and deeds of heroism, but it also serves as a warning to the future. http://citysightseeing-blog.co.za/2014/06/07/ditsong-national-museum-of-military-history-johannesburg/
