The National Afrikaans Literary Museum and Research centre was established in 1973 and is based in Bloemfontein. Here you are able to browse through a variety of Afrikaans literature and related arts written by prominent Afrikaans writers.
The collection includes books, media clippings, posters, manuscripts, magazines, visual art works, audio-visual pieces and much more. The institute preserves and documents literary pieces capturing linguistic blending of East and West Africa over the last 100 years. There are many fascinating pieces on display and it is interesting to see how language has merged and altered over the years and in different parts of the country.
