Some of the items to see
in the colourful collections.

The Museum is home to many different collections. It was divided into four main rooms which are just as unique as the town itself. The museum houses many historical artifacts and is well worth a visit if you want to know more about the history behind some of Clanwilliam’s best known industries such as Rooibos and shoe-making. Attractions include the Rooibos Exhibit, Leipoldt Exhibit Room, Clanwilliam History, Rieldans Video and San Exhibit Room.

These exhibitions will transport you back in time to where it all started. Whether you want to learn more about the history of Clanwilliam and its famous families, C.L. Leipoldt, Tolla van der Merwe or if you just want to see how people used to live back in the day, then a visit to our museum is a must. Come see how “vellies” are made.
