The Western Cape Sights

Clanwilliam Museum (Ou Tronk Museum)

Updated 11/07/2014

Fodor's Review

The display is old-fashioned and not particularly well curated at the Clanwilliam Museum but still gives a sense of remarkable native son Dr. Christiaan Louis Leipoldt and early settler life in the mountains. The wagons, carts, and rudimentary household equipment speak of much harder times, when pioneers headed into the high country wanting to farm or escape colonial control in the cities.
