Bloemfontein is the proud home of the Wagon Museum which is situated at the same address as the First Raadsaal Museum in St George Street.
The Wagon Museum showcases a delightful collection of the original wagons and carriages used generations ago by the first settlers and Voortrekkers in South Africa. The collection includes an ox wagon used by the Voortrekkers, a spring wagon, mule wagon, transport wagon and a Cape cart.
The museum tells the history of transport in the area, as well as its development through the ages. The newest display focuses on the transport used by the black folk of South Africa during the earliest part of the 20th century.
