The Garden Route and the Little Karoo Sights

C. P. Nel Museum

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

The C. P. Nel Museum focuses on the ostrich and Oudtshoorn's boom period at the beginning of the 20th century. The section on fashions of the feather-boom period are by far the most picturesque. The display that depicts the contribution of Lithuanian Jews to the economic development of Oudtshoorn and the feather industry contains a reconstruction of the town's first synagogue.
