About The Despatch Museum

The Despatch museum is an interesting museum brimming with history and a wide variety of it at that. The first thing you will notice is the large Stegasaurus, a model made to scale, of which the original is at Bayworld in Port Elizabeth. The dinosaur’s remains were found in the town around the 1900’s.

Here you can also see examples of the town’s development, including models of red brick chimneys crafted by the town engineer and displays of original brick made in the town itself.

Sport memorabilia from some famous names such as Adri Geldenhuys, Rudi Koertzen as well as some items from the Springboks and SA cricket team are exhibited here. There is an awful lot to discover at the quaint museum and much to see and learn within this small town.
