  • So disappointed how this once wonderful archive of Settler history has been neglected and is now hardly worth visiting. Rest rooms are out of order and the exhibits are uninspiring to say the least.
  • Very interesting and educational local history section. There is a small entry fee. Half of the main floor is dedicated to the 1820 settlers from Britain and how they lived their lives and their culture in the decades after their arrival and settlement in the Albany district. The other half of the main floor is about the local history and culture of the indigenous peoples of the Eastern Cape. The curator and geneologist are also very helpful to researchers who have special interests and may want to consult the archival collection, by appointment.
