Outside The Maropeng Visitor Centre – Johannesburg

One of Gauteng's favourite heritage attractions, the award-winning Maropeng Visitor Centre has welcomed more than a million visitors since it opened in 2005. The world-class exhibition in the Cradle of Humankind, takes visitors on an interactive and educational journey through human evolution over the past few million years, and adults and children alike enjoy the underground boat ride through the different stages of the Earth's creation. The exhibition features fun installations that teach visitors about pre-historic animals that inhabited Earth before they became extinct, as well as bipedalism, the ability humans have to walk on two legs. The Maropeng Visitor Centre is open seven days a week from 9AM-5PM. The last boat ride departs at 4PM. For more info - http://myde.st/HHwzLP
