About Stellenbosch Village Museum

The history of Stellenbosch is portrayed in a novel way at the Stellenbosch Village Museum.

Instead of rooms full of photos and remnants of yesteryear, this museum has chosen to represent the architectural and historical context of this Western Cape university town in four different houses, each with its own design, look and feel.

The Schreudeurhuis


Originally built in 1709, this is the oldest documented town-based house in the country. The furniture has been made from local materials (as was typical of this era), giving it a somewhat crude, but charming, ambience.

Blettermanhuis


This house represents the homes of the period between 1750 and 1790, despite only having been built in 1789. This house has a typical Cape style from the 1700’s, complete with gables.

Grosvenor House


Grosvenor was constructed in 1782 but each owner built onto it until 1803. Its style is a fabulous example of the double-storeyed, patrician Cape homes.

Om Bergh


Having been revamped in the 1800’s, this home is gabled with a thatch roof. Wallpaper and 19th century furniture completes the colonial look of OM Bergh.
