The oldest of the Albany Museum Complex, the Natural Science Museum, was established in 1855. A visit to this museum will allow you to learn more about the natural history and science of the Eastern Cape. Some of the interesting exhibits include a reconstruction of the first dinosaur discovered in South Africa, the Gibeon meteorite and a working Foucault pendulum.

A fire in 1941 destroyed the building and many of the exhibits and the new exhibits constructed were supplied by museums around the country. Plenty of research takes place at the museum and this centres around the earlylife histories of freshwater fishes, water qualify and management, late Stone-age and early iron-age people and more.

Come and learn more about life before your time, you will find out some interesting facts you didnít know before!
