Fransie Pienaar Museum
The Fransie Pienaar Museum portrays the cultural and natural history of Prince Albert and the district, and holds a large collection of furniture and paintings. Other highlights include a display of the gold mining activities of the late 19th century; a cast of the Bradysaurus fossil footprints found in the area; a Stone Age exhibition which includes a rare, intact Khoekhoe clay pot found on the outskirts of the town; a moving display of the forced removals of the 60’s; and a new exhibition of the life and art of Outa Lappies (Jan Schoeman).
During March every year, witblits is distilled in our antique copper still and sold at the museum. The museum shop also has a wide range of books about the history, ecology and geology of Prince Albert and the surrounding areas as well as cards, postcards and posters.
