The President Pretorius Museum in Potchefstroom is situated at the meeting point of Esselen and Van der Hoff streets. The museum is one of the typical old Cape-style homes, believed to have been built by President Marthinus Wessel Pretorius in 1868. Along with the house, he likely also built a stable, coach house and smithy. President Pretorius was the first president of the South African Republic and he founded the city of Pretoria.

The President Pretorius Museum tells the story of the unique urban Boer culture. This culture has waned over the generations, but is still a massive contributor to the South African identity. The President Pretorius Museum has been declared a National Monument.
