About The Great Fish River Museum

The Great Fish River Museum depicts the earlier history of the Eastern Province pioneers from 1840 to 1900. The building was constructed in 1849 as a Dutch Reformed Church Parsonage, and declared a National Monument in 1971.

There is an exhibition of a traditional coach house housing an ox wagon, a Cape cart and a four-horse cart. Outside is an example of a parsonage garden of 100 years ago. In the main building there is a display of the history of Cradock, the 1820 settlers and Voortrekkers, and a photographic demonstration of Nelson Mandela's life.
