Museum

We make cultural history come alive again!

The ATKV’s Hartenbos museum is situated in the cultural heartland of Afrikaans. This top-class facility focuses on the Great Trek, and houses a variety of interesting depictions and exhibitions that have been tastefully arranged with attractive antiquities to create an accurate representation of the living conditions of the Voortrekker pioneers of 1835 to 1848.

Apart from the lifelike portrayals of the Great Trek, the museum offers a commemorative exhibition of the Symbolic Oxwagon Trek of 1938, a very special representation of an authentic little shop from the olden days as well as a depiction of the history of Hartenbos.

The stunning museum is located 40 km from George. Friendly staff members stand ready to guide you through some of the most poignant moments in the Afrikaner’s cultural history, which not only shaped the Afrikaner’s past, but certainly also that of the broader South Africa.

The ATKV’s decision to establish the Hartenbos museum dates as far back as 1937. As the idea for the Symbolic Oxwagon Trek of 1938 originated in Hartenbos, the Great Trek (1835 to 1848) was identified as the main theme for the facility. Do visit this unique museum where the Great Trek comes alive again!
