Humansdorp Museum has a collection of cultural historic artifacts from yesteryear, beautifully preserved for a trip down memory lane.

  • Grind some coffee beans by hand or write a letter to a loved one on an old typewriter.
  • Kids can dress-up with some fun “vintage” items.
  • Some of the artifacts date back since the inception of the town by Matthys Gerhardus Human in 1849 when he donated 600 morgen of his farm “Rheboksfontein” to erect a Dutch Reformed Church.
  • Amongst the exhibition is a Chicago Cottage air pump organ (circa 1879) which can still produce many a fine tune.
  • For bookings of more than five people a musical performance can be arranged for some nostalgic enjoyment.
  • Listen to tales of an era gone by and perhaps even have a chance meeting with the resident ghost…..
  • Visiting hours: Monday to Friday 9:00 to 14:00.
  • Saturday visits can be arranged for groups.
