Museums

Take a walk through history from ancient times to the last century.
WHERE TO GO

Spend time in a region that prizes its history: from ancient times to the past century. Karoo stories are around every corner and in the heart of every town: immerse yourself in odes to the Karoo’s greatest artists – Helen Martins, Walter Battiss and Olive Schreiner, discover prehistoric fossils and Khoikhoi cave paintings, or stroll through another time in history or a peaceful church. Our stories are those of every man: soldiers, playwrights and farmers – legends, every one.
