The Bergtheil Museum was named after Jonas Bergtheil and is housed in the oldest building in Westville, dating back to the 1840ís. The museum focuses on the 1848 German settlers that Jonas Bergtheil brought to Natal as Director of the Natal Cotton Company and their contribution to the settlement of Westville, Cleremont and New Germany.

The Bergtheil Museum also has a wonderful collection of photographs, documents and artefacts. The building has undergone alterations over the years but the original cottage still features massive stonewalls and hand-hewn yellowwood floors. The building was declared a National Monument in 1983.
