Stop for a dose of Kimberley and Northern Cape heritage. Housed in a beautiful brown and white building that has been at times a sanatorium, a school, a hotel and a museum, the McGregor Museum has some fascinating exhibits on the natural and and cultural history of this off-the-beaten track province.
The sweeping staircase you see from the front door is impressive enough, but the many displays are worth a few hours of your time. They range from the Anglo-Boer War (the museum's building is where mining magnate and colonist Cecil John Rhodes spent the Siege of Kimberley during the Anglo-Boer War) to the prehistoric rock art and palaeoanthroplogy of the area.
The little gift shop is worth a quick browse and if you have more time, visit the fascinating Duggan-Cronin photographic exhibition of South African peoples taken in the early 20th Century which is located just next door.
