Bredasdorp Shipwreck Museum
Salvaged items from a ship wreck on display

The Bredasdorp Museum is primarily a maritime Museum whose primary theme is "Shipwrecks along the dangerous Southern Cape coast and their influence on the development of the Strandveld".

There have been approximately 130 shipwrecks off the Southern Cape coast since 1673. This dangerous section of coast is known as the "Graveyard of the ships". The Museum also documents the rich history of the area. Well worth checking out.
