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
