The Chavonnes Cannon Battery Museum houses the excavated ruins of one of Cape Town's oldest waterfront cannon batteries. The Battery was built in 1726 by the Dutch East India Company to protect the port against possible attacks by the French and English East India Companies and bellicose pirates. It was demolished and covered during the construction of the waterfront in the mid 1800s and excavated in 1999. Wander the ruins on your own or join one of the costumed tour guides for a by-demand tour anytime after 12pm. Call in advance to ensure that a tour guide will be available.
