We are regular visitors to the North West as we love the Pilansberg National Game Park. A google search to discover what else the area had to offer alerted us to the existence of this oasis of historical culture housed in a century old school house and incorporating within it's museum precincts a colonial church, lavish gardens and a splendid auditorium shaded by a wooden pole roof and a magnificent PaperBark Acacia. A keen and passionate young woman proudly guided us through the very thorough exhibitions weaving a tale of African lore that has embraced modernity but still takes pride in it's provenance. We were entranced for several hours!
It is such a pity that this museum appears to be so unknown - it should be marketed at all the prolific game lodges in the area to encourage visitors - not only to generate interest in a culture so different yet so similar to a collective humanity - but more importantly to generate revenue. We would like to see this interest manifest itself in a thriving centre with all the planned activities available and the coffee shop catering to those visitors.
If you find yourself in the area ... just go. I cannot recommend it enough.

We did tours from the hotel and saw cheaters bring down an impala just in front of us - amazing. We also drove the park and got to see elephants swimming, hippos walking, and many animals. great park just two hours drive from Joburg!

This was a very interesting and interactive experience. The four of us were picked up at Shepherd's Tree Lodge and taken to the Moruleng Cultural Precinct where we immediately were taken for a pre-arranged lunch, which was very tasty. After that they showed us how their cornmeal is prepared and we got to sample some local beer. Then our guide took us to 3 sacred sites and finally to a 4-yr-old cultural museum. Everything about this day was wonderful, except for the fact that they had intended for us to do it on bicycle. And not the kind of bikes we are familiar with; these bikes were heavy, no hand brakes and with a bar across. It only took us a few steps with bike in tow to realize that if we continued they would have at least 3 of us heading to the nearest clinic. The decision was made to drive us around in our shuttle vehicle. Thank goodness!

Was there as part of my holidays and safari trip to Pilanesberg National Park South Africa. Lots of local stuff to buy. Definitely worth supporting.

Attended the Minister of Tourism Outreach Program on Thursday 9 July 2015 at Moruleng Cultural Precinct.

What a pleasant surprise! It is a shining example of how creative South African heritage institutions can be. The Precinct comprises many different elements. It includes the Mphebatho Museum building and the old Dutch Reformed Church, which turned 150 years old in 2014. It also incorporates the creation of an Iron Age settlement pattern, a lekgotla that can seat up to 200 people and way-finding and external information panels at selected places of interest.

The Moruleng Cultural Precinct offers visitors many hours of interest and fun. A cultural experience never to forget - going to take my family for a visit very soon.

The Moruleng Cultural precinct is a definite must-do for locals and tourists alike; the staff went out of their way and put on a great show for our Candian family, who thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Truly recommended.

Funded in part by the local people (the tribe in the area gets an income from platinum mining) and by the National Lottery, this fascinating museum gives the visitor a good insight into the local history, indigenous knowledge and beliefs and the role and significance of local culture and missionaries. The museum uses film, sound, artifacts, outdoor exhibits and sculpture to communicate to the visitor. A great place to go when visiting the Pilanesburg National Park (named after Chief Pilane) or Sun City - worth a visit to see how local people are documenting, presenting and educating visitors around their history and culture
