This quaint museum amongst the cobbled lanes of Simon's Town offers a Ghost Tour through punishment cells, with messages from long ago. Run by a dedicated curator and staff, here a visitor can find the answer to the location of their family members' graves or the church where the marriage of great-grandparents was solemnized. Take a sentimental journey with Project Phoenix through the lives of the people who lived in Simon's Town before the 1967 removals took place. Smile at the photos of Able Seaman Just Nuisance, the huge Great Dane who was enrolled in the Royal Navy in 1939, or simply enjoy a cup of tea while absorbing the view over the yacht basin. Visit the shop for reasonably priced souvenirs.
