The Klerksdorp Museum is housed in a number of buildings. The main museum (a former prison), is a beautiful sandstone building completed in 1891 and features archaeology, cultural history, farm implements and animal drawn vehicles. There are period exhibitions in the adjacent Warden's House as well as regularly rotating temporary exhibitions that are housed throughout the Museum.
Faan Meintjies Nature Reserve
Faan Meintjies reserve provides a true bushveld experience just a few kilometres from the city of Klerksdorp.
For bird enthusiasts the Faan Meintjies Nature Reserve often forms part of a bird spotting tour and is regarded as a place for ‘serious’ birding. It helps that there are two loops of well-maintained roads and three seasonal dams in the reserve, so that accessing both the birds and the 30 odd species of wildlife resident in the reserve is relatively easy.
