About Visit the Graaff Reinet Museums

The Graaff Reinet Museum was established in 1956 and is governed by a Board of Trustees and subsidized by Department of Sport, Recreation, Arts and Culture of the Eastern Cape.

The five old buildings, Reinet House, Old Library, Old Residency, Urquhart House and the Miltary History Museum were built in the first part of the 1800s, house a vast collection of Graaff Reinet’s rich cultural and natural heritage, which includes a fossil and rock art collection, period furniture and contemporary history exhibitions.

The buildings are unique cultural gems and an integral part of the town, making Graaff-Reinet one of the most historically significant sites in the South Africa.

The Graaff Reinet Museum is the fifth largest province-aided museum in the Eastern Cape. It is a major tourist attraction within the Camdeboo area and one of the most important international tourist attractions within a 203km radius from Port Elizabeth.
