Sci-Bono Discovery Centre

Museum in Johannesburg
Heather Mason / Lonely Planet

Testament to the remarkable reawakening of downtown Jo'burg, this well-organised science museum, full of interactive exhibitions, occupies a former power station. Sci-Bono often hosts internationally acclaimed temporary exhibitions – such as 'Body Worlds' and 'Wonders of Rock Art' featuring the ancient Lascaux cave paintings – and these exhibitions are the best time to visit. Great for kids and adults alike.
