A sublime sandstone building and it's clock tower ticks on a foundation over a 100 years old. Originally the Oudtshoorn Boys High School the architecture of the C. P. Nel Museum teaches of Victorian times (1906) but now houses the private collection of antiquities of the late Colonel Charles Paul Nel.

The New Republican style School Hall (1912) forms part of the museum which is a cultural, historical and architectural commentary on the heritage of Oudtshoorn. Original artefacts and exhibits of the late 1800's banks, clothing, crockery, chemists, furniture, musical instruments, military weapons, transport, street life and wild life are displayed at this declared National Monument.

The museum's working St. John Paul Street Synagogue (1896) stills services the local Jewish community who were greatly involved in the global marketing of the town's Ostrich feathers during the second 'Ostrich feather boom' (1900 - 1914).
