In and around Oudtshoorn.

Arbeidsgenot Oudtshoorn


Erkenning aan hom wat AFRIKAANS vir ons toeganklik, leesbaar en amptelik gemaak het. “Om ons één eie taal tot nut te gebruik is groter kuns as om sewe vreemdes by te leer.”
ARBEIDSGENOT Oudtshoorn is die werkswinkel waar Afrikaans gevorm is en waar “Die Stem van Suid-Afrika” uit die hart en pen van C.J. Langenhoven verrys het.

CP Nel Museum

C.P Nel Museum

The Museum owes its origin to the private collection of Colonel Charles Paul Nel, who was a successful businessman and a collector of antiquities. A day before his death in 1951, he officially entrusted his collection to a Board of Trustees. Over the years the collection has been considerably enlarged.
The museum is essentially cultural-historical in nature and endeavours to collect, preserve, research and exhibit the unique heritage of Oudtshoorn and the Klein Karoo.

Le Roux Townhouse Oudtshoorn

Le Roux Town House

In June 1979 the Board of Trustees of the C.P. Nel Museum bought the Townhouse from Rose’s sole heir, Ada, and after costly restoration opened it as a Townhouse Museum. Furniture has been judiciously bought during this period to approximate the original furnishings which have remained in possession of the family.

On the 22nd February 1980 the house was declared a National Monument.
