We came here first and our ticket for entry also included entrance to the main museum/church.
Delightful little museum and cute garden, we felt privileged to have taken a look into the amazing past of Montagu and its beautiful people.

Montagu is probably the most beautiful town in South Africa with great offerings. A real getaway from the hustle and bustle.

Interesting old house and “museum” contents, plus a pleasant garden, well kept. When we visited many years ago there was a lady who had a real feel for the place and time. 4 pleasant but uninterested young ladies were responsible for an empty museum; no one had visited for the previous 3 days. We still enjoyed the experience.

It is a very old house with a huge garden in the back.
This all could be seen for a small admission. And this admission is also good for the other museum down the street.

A lot of old stuff is on display also.

Very interesting visit to two museums today. The history explained by the guide was very well narrated and very well informed
First class and well worth a visit

A good view in to the history of a pocket of Montagu, from connections to Kruger, its owners history, to the restoration of the house itself. It is good to see links to decolonised aspects of the area including a comprehensive selection of herbal remedies. The herb garden was a little disappointing as there was no-one on hand to do a guided tour. The house is packed with artifacts in each room, and the toy and doll collection will amaze kids. Also a somber reminder of how short life was on most photos of family members.

Delightful lady welcomed us in and for 20 rand each we were shown round this mid 1800s house with many old artefacts, many owned by the original owners.

We visited Jourbert House on Saturday so the regular staff were off duty and we found a very friendly part-time worker/volunteer called Marianne. She was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the place. Afterwords we sat in the garden with her and had such a nice time getting to know abit more about montagu and the life of local residents who are mostly farm workers and labourers. There are always two sides of every story and history lesson :)
All the same, this museum is an interesting placec to visit.

I visited the Joubert House after learning that they also had a herb garden. Interesting collection of home utensils as well as a Toy Section and Joubert family history. Two of the rooms actually have peach pip floors. I took a tour of the herb garden and the Gardener (Hilton) could point out herbs which I would have thought were weeds. Lots of the plants I knew, as my own garden is also indigenous. The Rose bushes had been pruned and should give a good Flush soon. There is an out building called Tronke, which I believe served as a holding cell while the Court was sitting. Whilst I visited there was a Meeting in progress to discuss the herb garden and I presume the way forward, as there are more planting needed (that is my opinion, judging by some empty spaces) The staff are friendly and courteous and the toilet was very clean. Do pay them a visit (only R10) as they need your support

We were attracted to the museum because of its wonderful herb garden at the back. My wife, being the chairperson and founder member of the Jeffreys Bay Herb Club, was fascinated. I was more interested in the lives of the people who lived (and died) there. The display of toys and dolls was also fascinating. Having commented that there was no bathroom, I was intrigued by the imagery of the family 'bath night' taken out of doors on the stoep at the back, in a tin bath.- delightful
