The Afrikaans Taalmonument Full Moon picnics are very popular with local residents and tourists alike, who especially enjoy the sunsets and incredible night scenes.

Guests are welcome to bring their own picnic baskets or pre-order one from the Oppi Berg Mobile Café on 060 382 9938 (R250 per couple, R450 per family of four). Dress warmly and bring a torch, and a mask. See www.taalmuseum.co.za/covid-19/ for the specific protocols.
Tickets are R40 per adult, R10 for SA students and R5 for children (free under six years). They are available from Computicket or at the gate, and no booking is required. Annual permits are available at R120 for individuals or R220 per family (currently offered at a 20%-discount), which includes access to all Full Moon Picnics.
The evenings are held in aid of ‘Let’s Read!’, the Language Museum’s literacy project for children, and visitors are encouraged to donate a new or second-hand children’s book.
