Bring a child in free to see #Homonaledi during the school holidays

Homo naledi will likely go down in history as one of the landmark scientific discoveries of the 21st century.

These fossils, which are part of the biggest collection of African hominin fossils ever discovered on the continent, have posed challenging new questions about what makes us human and the origin of the human race.

And the find, right here in the Cradle of Humankind, has also created a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for South African parents to allow their children to have a brush with history.

That's why we're inviting a child in free with every paying adult on the weekdays of the Gauteng school holidays, to allow as many young South Africans as possible to see the landmark fossils for themselves and engage with the global conversation around what the discovery means. You can book your tickets here.

The weekdays in the Gauteng school holidays are from 5-9 October and 12-16 October.    

Schools and educational institutions from around the world have already been flocking to Maropeng to see the fossils and are talking about the discovery online.

Here's a glimpse of what they've been seeing and saying about Homo naledi:
