The Strandveld Museum is situated in Frikkiesbaai, Franskraal 5km south of Gansbaai.
The quaint building dates back to the 1860s where it was originally used as a retreat by managers of Dyer Island and their families. It is now owned by Jan and Estie Fourie and houses a variety of local artefacts including the largest privately owned collection of relics from the HMS Birkenhead which sunk at Danger Point near Gansbaai in 1845.
The displays also include historic photos of Gansbaai and surrounding areas, fishing and farming equipment and interesting Strandveld memorabilla.
