About Port Elizabeth Museum at Bayworld

The Port Elizabeth Museum, which blends cultural with natural history, is the third oldest in South Africa. Housed in a large, three-storey building, the lower floor contains the library, administration offices, storerooms and workshops.

The ground level and first floors contain the Dinosaur, Marine, Bird, Maritime History, Costume and Local History Halls, a Curiosity Corner, as well as a Xhosa Bead work display. Other diverse exhibits in the fields of natural science, archaeology and geology are also regularly on display in the Port Elizabeth Museum.

Of particular interest are the exhibits of the 15m skeleton of the last Southern right whale harpooned in Nelson Mandela Bay; a life-sized reconstruction of the giant local prehistoric dinosaur known as Algoasaurus; a replica of the Dias Cross; and a 5m bronze cannon dated 1640, recovered from a Portuguese galleon wrecked near Port Elizabeth.
