A beautiful old church part of a 4 museum tour on Church Street. Definitely worth seeing if you are in the area. Tickets can be purchased at the earthquake museum across the road

Part of the 4 museum in this Church Street "route" you buy the tickets for the church at the Earthquake Museum.
Lovely inside with beautiful old furniture.
Buy the Tulbagh Walking tour audio (VoiceMap) and the place comes to life!

Like everything around, the outside does need a but of maintenance.

Our visit to the church was interesting and informative, but unfortunately the gardens of the church and the cemetery are in desperate need of care. They are overgrown and full of weeds and the graves have been left unkempt. Sad to see such a significant spot left in such a poor state.

The building is a stunning example of almost 300 year old architecture. A bit disappointed that inside the usual church furniture has been removed. The pews etc have been replaced with some very fine examples of cape furniture, cabinets, tables and clocks etc typical of the era. The cemetery is interesting and it would seem that some crisis ended the lives of many children in the early 1800's. Note: the church is closed to visitors between 13:00 & 14:00.

If you find yourself in Tulbagh there are two places that you should visit. The eathquake museum and De Oude Kerk. The latter is full of interesting furniture dating back to the 1800's and you will learn all about the founding ministers who pioneered this quaint little village.

We visited all the museums in Tulbagh as we love history. This church was the highlight of my visit to Tulbagh. I really enjoyed to walk through the graveyard behind the church. People were also burried inside the church which i found very strange and interesting. The furniture dates from many years ago and we saw some beautiful pieces. Worth a visit.

We had a quick visit before the church closed for 'lunch'. It is very old inside with old dolls and display items from a few centuries ago. The best view is from the 1st floor looking down over the pulpit.

This small place holds a lot of history. Was just sad to see that the place is not very good looked after. Still they have some nice pieces in there.
