The church was in beautiful condition and an antique symphonium was playing in the church. I did feel a few of the exibits were lacking. On the second floor were half dressed manikins, leaving the sense that maybe earlier there were additional show pieces that we are now missing out on. But the church as well as the rest of... More

A wonderful glimpse into the faithful lives of those gone before us. Well worth a visit. Read the articles on the walls as well.

I love old places like this and having staff around that can answer questions is such a breath of fresh air. Well done!! It is a small one room museum, but the history makes it worth it. I'll recommend it to friends.

The church was busy being re-painted when we visited showing that theres attention being given to the place. The church is beautiful inside with some of the original furniture peaces and alter still in place.

The last time I was here I was a wee sprog, but I remembered the Symphonion from when I was last there, and the very kind, and well-informed museum staff was so kind as to wind it up and let it play. We only meant to stay for a short while, but then kinda got carried away listening to what... More

We had just arrived in Tulbagh and were heading for our booked accommodation. Stopped at Info office for local map and on returning to parked car, stepped into the Oude Kerk for a quick look around. We were made to feel very unwelcome - doors were being closed all around us and staff seemed to want us to leave. Realised... More

Not even the earthquake of 1969 was able to shake this old church! It is beautifully preserved. The clock, the canon, the graveyard and the awesome building are all worth the visit.
