Eastern Cape - Museum and Monuments
The museum buildings are also 1 of the 10 national monuments we have in Burgersdorp. The photo on the right below, is of the Reformed Theological seminary building used from 1869 to 1904. From here the seminary was transferred to Potchefstroom from where the present Potchefstroom university developed.

To think these photo's were taken a 100 years ago.
Burgersdorp grew a little since then, and at least some of the streets are tarred. Most of these houses still exist and to think they were build with mud bricks.
The museum consists of 4 buildings, and each and every room are stacked with items used by our fore-fathers.
Anyway, you get the picture, the Burgersdorp museum got something of everything.
