Arend Dieperink Museum

Description

Definitely worth a stop, the Arend Dieperink Museum houses a valuable cultural and historical collection of Sotho and Voortrekker artefacts.

Inhabiting an elegant old stone school building, the museum tells the story of the region from early humankind at Makapan’s Cave, the Anglo Boer War and recent times.

Vintage farm implements, tractors and wagons are showcased outdoors. Inside are a few of the incredible archaeological finds discovered at Makapan’s Cave including the three-million-year-old human predecessor, Australothipicus africanus.

Do try the mampoer, a locally brewed ‘moonshine’ along with freshly baked bread – available on request.

Tours to Makapan’s Cave depart from the museum by prior arrangement +27 (0)15 491 9735.
