Ysterplaat air force museum is about 15 minutes away from Cape Town and located on the air force base itself. They are dedicated to the preservation of our iron legends of the skies. You’ll find a lot of facts, models, and memorabilia on display throughout the main museum building. They have a small hanger with a couple of planes and various items on display.

I will highly recommend going on a Saturday as hanger 4 is closed to the public on weekdays for normal air force operations. Hanger 4 is where they restore and keep some of the bigger aircraft, this would be a must-see, as it’s not every day you get to see bombers, helicopters, and jets this up close.
