Totius House Museum in Potchefstroom

Totius House Museum

Galleries and Museum in Potchefstroom(43.7 km from Vredefort)

Totius (Jakob Daniel du Toit) is famously known as the man who translated most of the Bible into Afrikaans. The Totius Museum is a typical example of a house built during the Edwardian period. The house was completed in 1905 and was occupied by professor Cachet, until professor D.J. du Toit (Totius) succeeded him as principal of the Theological School in 1911. Besides being an academic, Totius was also well known as a poet and cultural leader. The entire content of the house originated from the du Toit family. Admission to the museum is free and guided tours are offered.

The Barnyard Theatre Vereeniging in Vereeniging

The Barnyard Theatre Vereeniging

Galleries and Museum in Vereeniging(74.6 km from Vredefort)

Friendship, good food, wine and brilliant entertainment – the Barnyard Theatre in Vereeniging is where it all comes together. The first Barnyard Theatre started as a homely, rustic farm theatre in Plettenberg Bay where friends and family could be entertained and eat, drink and talk into the small hours of the morning. It proved to be such a winner that more Barnyard Theatres started popping up all over the country. There are currently 12 Barnyard Theatres in South Africa. While each theatre is a product of its individual setting, they all retain the quaint rustic charm of the original farm theatre’s humble beginning.

Hector Pieterson Memorial Museum in Orlando West

Hector Pieterson Memorial Museum

Galleries and Museum in Orlando West(98.5 km from Vredefort)

The photo of Hector Pieterson, one of the students killed in a storm of bullets during the 1976 Student Uprising in Soweto, is an image etched into the hearts and minds of many. This picture made Hector a symbol of youth resistance to Apartheid after a peaceful protest march on 16 June 1976 turned deadly. The inspirational museum is a small redbrick building that blends in with the humble neighbouring community homes. A sensitive display follows the timeline of the buildup to 16 June, starting with the school-by-school strike among Soweto's scholars. Today, 16 June is National Youth Day, honouring young people who gave their lives in the struggle for democracy and freedom.
