Genadendal Mission Museum
Genadendal Mission Museum Review
Of particular note in Genadendal is the Genadendal Mission Museum, spread through 15 rooms in three buildings. The museum collection, the only one in South Africa to be named a National Cultural Treasure, includes unique household implements, books, tools, and musical instruments, among them the country's oldest pipe organ, which arrived in the village in 1832. Wall displays examine mission life in the Cape in the 18th and 19th centuries, focusing on the early missionaries' work with the Khoekhoen. Unfortunately, many of the displays are in Afrikaans only.
