I came upon this museum by accident, it was fabulous, I met Hugh and Tony and spent about an hour talking about the old day's, sadly I had to move on but will certainly be back for some great time rediscovering Rhodesia, there were some artifacts that bought back happy memories. Well done by those concerned.

One of two places in the world you can see a collection like this. It’s a deeply personal experience with stories and the ‘real deal’ articfacts like the Roll of Honor. Congrats to all involved - highly recommend.
