My husband and I decided to stop at the Cradle of human kind as we were close to our elephant experience. It cost us R125 per person, we were quite excited to go as we both have been there for more than 15 years. Unfortunately I see that nothing has changed, expect that the Sterkfontein caves were flooded.

We then paid for the photos they took at the end of the tour at the photography station, we paid for the digital photos, we typed our email in, and to our surprise it's been 24 hours and we still have not received it. So they are thiefs just like everywhere else in South Africa. Very disappointing.

I had high expectations of visiting this modern museum, however the absence of the most important original pieces that have been found in the area has caused me disappointment (For example Mrs Ples skull).

Personally, I would have preferred to visit the museum where you exhibit these pieces.

It is an excellent infrastructure with an exhibition of prints, photographs, and narrative panels that are educational and interesting.
I was impressed by the determination of the existence of bone cancer in an Austrolopithecus Sediba that is more than a million years old.

A great trip and drive for visiting a peaceful and tranquil area outside of the bustling city in Johannesburg

The Cradle of Humankind was the visit in South Africa that I was most excited about and the visit turned out to be my biggest disappointment. I read, watched the new documentary on homo naledi and imagined myself coming face-to-face with our earliest ancestors. For children and the unfamiliar, this museum may offer a good introduction to human evolution. I was under the impression that we would be able to see actual hominid/hominin fossils, which is not the case. Everything in this museum was a replica. All of the originals are stored away at Wits. Bones have power. There is a reason why most religious traditions have some form of ancestor veneration; in some actual hones and artifacts are revered. The Cradle of Humankind offers cheap plastic replicas that can be 3-d printed and displayed in any museum. I cried and shook with emotion when I stood over the real bones of Lucy. Here, I was annoyed that I came all the way to South Africa and paid a guide to show me plastic replicas. To me, this was a tourist trap and a definite miss. I regret paying for a tour and wasting a day here that could have been spent elsewhere. I recommend that people really interested in early human history visit the Human Origins Center at Wits University.

Not your typical museum. Children are encouraged to touch and test their knowledge. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and had a pleasant way in dealing with kids. He offered a plethora of information and facts. The models and displays were very captivating. The highlight for my family was the simulated journey through time in a boat in a dark cave . The exhibit with the splashing of water, dark twists and turns dinosaurs peeking around dark corners added excitement and intrigue. It was a day well spent . I encourage a visit especially if you have children they will be amazed.

It was superb to see how well kept the environment and service is.
I was disappointed that some of the items were not in working order. People that visit are also very destructive.
The magnificence of history is truly special and good knowledge that we need to treasure as a country

The cradle of Human kind is the name given to this area the comprises many different archeological sites where early ancestral humans have been found. This particular site the Maropeng Visitor Centre, is where visitors should first come if interested. This visitor center was funded by UNESCO and is a world heritage site. The place has a large parking lot, a snack bar and a few shops. A 1.2k walking trail around the area and the centerpiece is the visitor center with a gallery on the ground floor and a large permanent exhibit on the origin of early man below ground. The permanent collection is accessed via a floating boat ride and a vortex tunnel that kids will enjoy but are otherwise forgettable.

The collection of information is good but overall this museum which dates to around 2005 looks past its prime. Some displays were non-functional (lights were out, exhibits dingy looking), the ride was silly and missing its soundtrack. I was looking forward to coming here, but was disappointed. We did spend about 1.5 hours reading everything. If you come you must also try to go to Sterkfontein (close by) where you can visit the actual caves where so many human fossils were found. This should be the big draw. The caves, however, flood sometimes so had been closed since December and were not set to open until July 2023. My Google map said the caves were open but they were not, If going confirm their status before hand. I would not make a special trip out of Jo burg to come here unless I could also visit the caves.

Very interesting site. It is well set up for both adults and children. The first half of our visit was guided; the second half was on our own. There is a lot of information presented about our human and nonhuman ancestors and current theories as to how and when humanity moved out of its African homeland and dispersed around the globe. It was an informative visit and not overly technical. We probably spent about two hours.

Visited during busy peak December season and was disappointed that the most of the stores for the market were closed. Only the restaurant and photoshop was open which wasn’t great from a tourist perspective.

The tour was great, however, the tour guide spoke for about 25 minutes outside before leading us inside. It was too long and too detailed and technical for the audience.

Once we entered the building, we found it very informative and thoroughly enjoyed the water ride and interactive activities for the kids.

A great outing for the entire family.
