Overnight? Stay at accommodation in V&A Waterfront, in Cape Town

The Iziko Maritime Centre features an overview of shipping in Cape Town, and the earliest existing model of Table Bay harbour, completed in 1885 by prisoners and warders of Breakwater Prison, forms part of the exhibitions. Images depicting Table Bay from the 17th to 20th century give an idea of the development of the harbour.

The harbor history of Cape Town lies in the Maritime Museum in the V&A Waterfront, close to the Two Oceans Aquarium. Here you will be able to see the earliest representation of the Table Bay harbor originally created by the wardens and prisoners of Breakwater prison in 1885. This is a fascinating exhibit, as are the many collections of ship models and bits and pieces related to shipping in Cape Town.

The photographs on display are phenomenal and there is also an online service where you can have your questions about shipping answered and order images of the ship in question. Discover more about shipwrecks, whaling and the history of Table Bay and be amazed at how far we have come since.
