The Benoni Museum is house in the old municipal health clinic on the corner of Elston Avenue and Rothsay Street. Opened in 1994 this museum displays an historical event which took place in 1922 - the Rand Revolt.
This strike took place in a number of mines throughout the Witwatesrand, the strike soon escalated into an open revolt between the armed miners and the South African army and police. This revolt took place for approximately a year and Benoni was a key player in that it was one of the headquarters used by the miners and plenty of fighting took place in and around the area. So it is understandable why this would be a feature in the museum, if you want to find out more you should head over to the museum for more information.
