The Potchefstroom Museum tells the unique story of this South African town in terms of four great men, who shaped and moulded it in their own ways. It also provides an important reflection of the Great Trek, the two wars of independence and the South African Republic.
The four key figures that have shaped the museum (and the area) are:

1) Andries Hendrik Potgieter, a Voortrekker who founded the town in 1838
2) Marthinus Wessel Pretorius, the president of the South African Republic
3) Otto Landsberg, an artist whose work is on exhibition here as a permanent fixture
4) Totius, a poet known for translating the Christian Bible into Afrikaans.

The art gallery of Potchefstroom Museum showcases an impressive collection of Landsberg’s works as the core of the exhibition. Added to this are pieces from other renowned South African artists.
