Visiting this small museum one feels how brave an perseverant the first families must have been, coming to then faraway Montagy.

Everything very well presented and most interesting

Small and Lack of History
Oct 2019
I only went there because of the Herb Festival and wasn't too impressed with the history but bought very nice "Vet Plantjies" from a gentleman selling them. They are truly beautiful! Had to pay R20 just to enter - wasn't too impressed but got discount from the gentleman from whom I bought my plants.

WHAT A FANTASTIC HOSTESS AND AMBASSADOR
Mar 2019 • Family
This was part of our bicycle ride. We were a group of 8. This is such a cute museum with lovely staff. Now i MUST make mention of the Museum travel guide tthat gave us a talk in the herb shop. I am sorry i didnt ask her name. Her knowledge, and expertise were excellent, what a great asset. She was particularly articulate. It was so lovley.

Not worth the drive seeking history of the place
Dec 2018 • Family
R10 to access the museum which consisted of one hall. Not much to see if you are looking for historical information about the place. My first impression was that it seemed like a antique warehouse with second hand goods. It was a bit of a let down but hey...having expectations is not good. Go and see it for yourself ...this was my experience and yours may differ.

A bit of history

Ariving late as usual I have to admit that the welcome I received was overwhelming friendly. Although they were closing in a few minutes they stil made time to assist and make us feel welcome. We were not rushed in anyway and I could have a nice chat with the owner about the museum. Thank you for the hospitality

AN OLD NG CHURCH
Aug 2018 • Solo
When I arrived I was told that the entrance fee was R10. I only had R200. notes and Andrea said I could enjoy the Museum and maybe come back later to pay. Whilst looking at the lovely display of crockery I suddenly remembered where I had small notes. Much to Andrea's amusement I ran to my car and came back with my entrance fee. Now I was free to take as many photos as I wanted. What I liked most was that the original pulpit was still intact.
There is a display of bridal dresses and family bibles but I liked most was the white and silver tea service ( I told Andrea as I left that was all I wanted - much to her dismay).
There were interesting old wheelchairs and musical instruments.
Packets of dried herbs (from the Joubert House garden) for any ailments are for sale as well as jars of Honey and Rooibos teas.
Do pay them a visit - they need your support

Museum with a good support group
Aug 2018 • Friends
A museum in a church - features wedding gowns of old, family bibles of the past and a fine old pulpit. I made two visits, the first just to see the place and the second a few days later to hear an expert on the forts of the boer war talk about the war in general and then in more detail about the numerous forts that had been built to defend the town from the boer commandos - never realized there were so many.

Visit Museum
May 2018 • Couples
Location excellent. Enough off street parking. Love the history and herbal exposition for sale. Lady attendant was very friendly. The herbal aspect makes it unusual and worth a visit.
The Museum show cased quite a few interesting and historical items (furniture, crockery, pictures and medicines) The 'peach' kitchen floor is amazing and the garden is beautiful. I've sit on the stoep for a while. It was refreshing and definitely worth a visit.
