Here you will find old wagons and horse carts dating from the Voortrekker era to the early part of the 20th century, before cars started taking over. I'm certainly glad motor... read more

Hi, we visited on a Sunday, after the Farm festival on the previous Saturday, so it wasn't very busy. My 3 year old son enjoyed it so much, we had to "con" him into leaving after 3 hours:-) The museum displays are excellent, and we took a hike down to the farms yard and the picnic spot , past the...

Visiting the museum is interesting and if you are in the area go visit, unfortunately this is not a museum with a WOW factor. It feels as if the museum was not planned properly (but maybe it is just me). Some of the exhibits are quite well preserved and others are just lying around. The annual Mampoer fees is well... More

Here you will find old wagons and horse carts dating from the Voortrekker era to the early part of the 20th century, before cars started taking over. I'm certainly glad motor vehicles have improved since then. There is also old mechanised farming machinery powered by steam boilers that first needed a team of oxen or crawler tractor (also on display)... More

This is a sweet little museum with a lovely beautiful ancient little farm house where you can walk through and see how the people lived in the old days. The ground are interesting and the camping spot needs a bit TLC... but we had a good time there.

We love this place!! We have visited Willem Prinsloo more times than what we can remember. Our boys enjoy every moment from looking at the information posters to the tractors and other displays. The most fun is in feeding the horses, making mud puddles for the pigs and roaming amongst the cattle! The staff are very helpful. Some time ago... More

Willem Prinsloo is a funny and fascinating museum just off the N4 highway. Initial impressions aren't great with initial static displays of carriages and carts, but the staff have a great hands on attitude and don't mind children looking and touching. Small boys of all ages will love the tractor and traction engine shed where my son displayed his inner... More

An interesting farm museum With a fascinating collection of tractors and other farm Equipment, set in good buildings and nice surroundings. However, I am left with a feeling of a wast untapped potential for creating a great farm museum, that could help counter the dwindling interest in agriculture.

History is brought to life in a way that the entire family will enjoy, as visitors explore... More
