The Oude Kerk Volksmuseum in Tulbagh is home to three buildings on the historic Church Street. After an earthquake in 1969 it was decided that more importance needed to be placed on the architectural heritage and so the Oude Kerk Volksmuseum was born. The church building (House Number 1) shows visitors a good collection of Cape furniture and colonial artefacts.

House Number 6 is known as the Earthquake Museum and it takes visitors on a journey through the valley’s history and how after the earthquake in 1969 the town of Tulbagh was rebuilt.

The third house in the museum complex is House Number 22, known as the Ou Volks Museum. This is a small Cape Dutch pioneer cottage that has been restored and brings to life a quaint home and life as you would know it 200 years prior to modern times.

You’ll need to know that the museum is only open on the first and last weekend of the month during Winter (May to September) but remains open midweek.
