Now this is an excellent museum to visit that depicts the life of Olive Schreiner. Give yourself a few hours and enjoy this museum that is of high standard and well maintained by the curator. Tea and coffee is available so go and visit this museum.

The story of Olive Schreiner - a pioneer feminist - is incredibly interesting. Here is her house with its interior restored to its original detail and the story of her life told across the walls.

I sent tripadvisor a carefully worded accurate reveiw of the Schreiner Museum in Cradock S.Africa several days ago. Am wondering why it has not been published. Fantastic little museum just clinging-on and it deserves every bit of publicity it can get. What happened?

Even if you don't know who Olive Shreiner was, this well-presented museum gives you a good sense not only of her interesting literary life, but the overall (surprisingly liberated) mores of the time. Would be helpful to have her best known book "Story of An African Farm" easily available for purchase

One of the highlights of our trip to the Eastern Cape. Very informative to the extent that you learn to know who Olive Schreiner was and what she stood for. Thought provoking
