CP Nel Museum | Western Cape Government

CP Nel Museum


Oudtshoorn was once the world centre of the ostrich-feather trade, which made some people millionaires. The CP Nel Museum, housed in the former Oudtshoorn Boys' High School building, recreates the boom days that swept this Little Karoo town - and its totemic flightless bird - to world prominence.
