Kleinplasie Open Air Museum

The Kleinplasie Open Air Museum is a living museum that lets you experience the life of the early farming communities from 1690 to 1900. See how these settlers made bread, candles tobacco and alcohol (known as witblits) in the traditional way. Visit the blacksmith at work or see coffee being made. These activities take place on Monday to Friday.
