Wonderful collection of memorabilia from the past (if you're into that kind of thing). Very friendly ladies to assist and talk about the exhibits ... we enjoyed some very delicious pancakes outside in the windmill area. Great to see these big useful monsters up close.
What a surprise to get more than just a windmill tour but initimate historic information from the nicest lady who brims with knowledge and enthusiasm. So much memorabilia has been collected and is on display. If you get your timing right you could enjoy freshly...More
A museum dedicated mainly to windmills ... of every size and colour, hey dot the large property, begging to be photographed.
The museum building is also of interest, showing the life of farmers in this rather remote corner of the province.
Wat a wonderful experience to visit this museum...one of is kind in South Africa. A very enthusiastic curator and guide with a magnitude of information about te exhibits and the town and surroundings. A must visit wen in te area...well done!
This museum offers a great collection of several items of historic value. Enjoyed the visit on an early week day while travelling through Loeriesfontein. Loved the plethora of windpumps next to the museum. Would love to return to this quant town.

The lady presenting the tour of both the history museum and the Windpump Museum made it so interesting.
It was wonderful to see how the pioneers lived and their wagons, old bibles, clothes, cookware, clothes etc. What a hard life and such courageous people.
We visited on a bus tour. Some lovely photo opportunities with the windmills and lots of patches of flowers in around the town. Not a lot to do or see other than the windmills and a lovely church around the corner.
A great place to stop off, stretch you legs and be amused. Informative staff will entertain you with stories of times gone by. And who would have thought you got so many different wind pumps!?
Probably not worth a trip to Loeriesfontein in itself, but...More

What makes it so special are the people who look after this place.
The museum is full of local Karoo history and a great collection of wind pumps and wind mills. Pumps for...More
