About Wellington Museum

The Cape Winelands are not only filled to the brim with wonderful wine estates (see Wellington Wine Estates), but they also offer a bit of history for those who aren’t all the interested in the wine or would like to take a morning off from wine tasting. The Wellington Museum is one such place that is a fantastic example of the history of the area.

The Wellington museum houses a large number of artifacts that depict a variety of African cultures including items from the Stone Age, traditional items from both the Sotho and Tswana cultures including tools; musical instruments and jewellery. You will even find a exhibit of Egyptian artefacts that dates back to roughly 1375BC during the reign of King Akhenaten.

Discover how Africa met the west and how the area has ties to England, Scotland, France and the Netherlands. Wellington is one of the first places in the country where the Free Burghers from the Netherlands and the Huguenot refugees laid foundations for the first farms. Find out about pioneers from the area such as Andrew Murray who set up the Huguenot Seminary which revolutionised education for women or Andrew Geddes Bain who built the first road across the Limiet Mountains into the interior … the Bainskloof Pass.
