A most fascinating museum. Having read "Story of an African Farm" with its pejorative terms, I was very surprised when learning about how in 2000 she was posthumously given an award by the South African government for her struggle for human rights and democracy.

Do read a little bit about Olive Shreiner first, and then make time to pop in to the museum. It was very worth while - and our thanks to the gentleman who gave us an explanation of her life - he brought it all to life for us.
The little book shop at the back is also worth a visit.

Very interesting and informative museum. The curator was very knowledgeable and friendly. Great bookshop with South African Authors, including both old and new publications. Well worth the visit.

This museum was very interesting and I learnt a lot about Olive Schreiner. There are rooms with the story of Olive Schreiner on the walls. The curator was helpful. History on Cradock was included so it wasn’t fully about Olive Schreiner. Some rooms were done up with the style of the time that Schreiner had lived. A bookstore was included, although you can’t pay for a book with your credit card.

Different from the general museum type get up. Very friendly and informative curator. We made our way through the rooms to discover the details of Schreiner’s life. Fascinating and inspiring. Information was well presented and just enough detail to tell her story without trying to promote some agenda or bore the reader to death.

We had a quick visit. The information panels in the historical house are very interesting and well laid out. It was an interesting look on this great author.

Really enjoyed this exhibit. House neat and exhibits good. Just the video should run a little more slowly...there is a lot to see in some of the pics so 15 secs per picture would be better.
