About The Winterton Museum

The Winterton Museum is located in the majestic Drakensberg region. It was opened in 1993 by Sheila Henderson and displays the history of the local farming communities in the area, the early inhabitants from the Stone Age, the Iron Age, the San people, the Voortrekkers and the early English settlers.

There are various historical items and reproductions of San art as well as a gallery with San paintings and photographs of local San art. Other displays include the first South African democratic elections, the battles of Spieoenkop and Vaalkrans, and a blacksmith shop featuring the Weston Caravan. There is also a reconstructed Zulu beehive kraal built with traditional materials and methods used by the local Ngwane people's ancestors.

The outstanding private collection of Boer War books are excellent guides for those planning to visit the battlefields in the area.
