In modern society suffering caused by war is still a reality. South Africa experienced this suffering during the Anglo-Boer War, also referred to as the South African War of 1899-1902. The outcome was bitterness, hatred, dispossession and division for many decades to come. More than a century later South Africans can look back at this event as a shared tragedy that shaped the social, political, economical and historical landscape of South Africa as we know it today.

In order to understand the history of South Africa, a visit to the War Museum is an absolute must. The War Museum not only provides the visitor with an insight into the course and development of the Anglo-Boer War through its unique collection and exhibitions, but it also brings the visitor closer to understanding the background against which the war took place and the universal suffering it caused.


To be an institution of excellence whereby the inclusivity and suffering of all communities during the Anglo-Boer War are depicted, thus propagating the message that negotiation is preferable to war.


To collect, curate and display items relating to the Anglo-Boer War of 1899-1902; research, publications and education on this theme and cooperation with other organisations, nationally and internationally, in order to develop this theme.
