This was a very eventual day for us. It was wonderful to finally take the time to stop by this center and absorbed everything thing it could offer, which was A LOT! It was so educational and the exhibits are done so professionally. The exhibits include baskets, artifacts from Native people, remnants of extinct Pleistocene gaints, exhibits on the local history such as Randsburg, Johannesburg, and Red Mountain. The illusion of the sabre tooth tiger was awesome! They have a childrens hands on display, which is essential. So there is so much to see here within the confines of this wonderful building. So make some time and bring the kids. You could learn a lot!
