The International Council of Museums (ICOM) established International Museum Day in 1977 to increase public awareness of the role of museums in the development of society, and it has been steadily gaining momentum ever since. In 2017, International Museum Day garnered record breaking participation with more than 36,000 museums hosting events in some 156 countries.

Wellington Museum

The Wellington Museum was founded in the early seventies by a group of dedicated residents to preserve the history of the town, its people and its surrounding district.

Our museum is situated in the winelands of the Western Cape, 45 minutes from Cape Town, featuring exhibitions of the cultures of various African ethnic groups, our first inhabitants, religion and education – which played a vital role in the early town of Wellington, an extensive Egyptian collection and information about the historical places in and around Wellington.

We have the following exhibitions to view: First Inhabitants, Development, Education & Religion, The Bain’s Kloof Pass, Our Industries, Our People, The Lady Loch Bridge and Our Egyptian Collection.

Open: Mondays – Fridays 09h00 – 17h00

Weekends and Public Holidays: Open by appointment
