At the South African Museum, you can see everything from dinosaurs to rock art and fossils to a stuffed quagga, the extinct zebra that once graced Table Mountain. These exhibitions document the evolution of animals and man in Africa. One of the highlights is the Whale Well where you can listen to whale sounds and see a life-size, 20-metre-long skeleton of the planet's largest mammal; the Blue Whale. This is always a crowd-pleaser with the kids.
