The South African National Museum of Military History, situated in Johannesburg, is the only museum of its kind in South Africa. It provides a nucleus of Museum and military history expertise in southern Africa.
The Museum's collection of more than 44 000 items are divided into 37 separate categories and include the official South African war art and photograph collections.
The Museum library has a unique collection of books, journals and archival material. Interviews are regularly conducted in the library as part of an ongoing oral history collection project.
