A group of residents of Albertinia saw the historical and cultural value of their town and became invested in preserving this in a way that honours and commemorates it. In April 2004, their vision materialised and they saw the opening of the Albertinia Museum.

This museum plays an integral role in telling visitors and the youth about how the town was established, and about the people and cultures that have formed its modern identity. Heritage is something very precious, and this establishment helps to celebrate and remember it in important, but practical and interesting ways.

Today, there are antiques, memorabilia and pieces of art on display to tell the tale of days passed. There is a particular focus on the thatch grass industry and how it has grown to the point where this area now exports thatch all over the world. In addition, the aloe industry is a major part of Albertinia’s tourism offering and industry and this is also examined at the museum. This plant is believed to have numerous health and beauty benefits, and has placed Albertinia firmly on the map in terms of the production of natural medicines and cosmetics.

The museum is open from Monday to Friday, 09h30 until 13h00 (and a little later during the months of December and January, when more visitors are expected and the children are on school holidays).
