The Heritage Centre is the ideal place to learn more about our Afrikaner heritage and how to preserve it. The centre houses the Building the Future Museum Theatre, where the story of the Afrikaner from 1902 to today, over 120 years in twelve scenes, is depicted, as well as a research library and archive.
The Afrikaner Research Library contains more than 15 000 books, magazines and pamphlets including a very special collection where you can research your family history. Further thematic collections include the Great Trek, Rebellion of 1914-1915, Anglo-Boer War, South African churches and towns, South African heritage, and Afrikaner culture, language and music.
In the Heritage Centre’s archive, you can learn how documents, photo, film and audiovisual collections are safely preserved for posterity. It is a treasure trove of information for academic researchers and contains unique thematic collections including: Voortrekker Monument, Great Trek, Anglo-Boer War, Solidarity, Afrikaner Broederbond, as well as personal collections that played an important role in the establishment of the Afrikaner’s cultural and historical heritage.
