Klerksdorp Museum


The Klerksdorp Museum is housed in a number of buildings. The main museum (a former prison), is a sandstone building completed in 1891 and features archaeology, cultural history, farm implements and animal drawn vehicles. There are period exhibitions in the adjacent Warden's House as well as regularly rotating temporary exhibitions that are housed throughout the Museum.

The Klerksdorp Museum aims to make people who live in or visit the City of Matlosana aware and proud of their heritage. This is achieved through transformed exhibitions, the conservation and management of heritage assets in the city, and regular educational and skills development programs hosted to school learners, students and other visitors.
