|The Klerksdorp Museum|
Is housed in the Old Prison. The original prison was built of raw clay-bricks and the doors were seldom locked. The only "safety precaution" was a furrow a few centimeters deep around the building which was probably only able to keep the most "honest swindlers" inside. Due to the absence of a hospital in Klerksdorp, patients were sometimes sent to this prison for "treatment" during the 1880's.
|Second War of Independence|
|(1899-1902) This exhibition has three subdivisions. The first part shows some articles actually used by soldiers during the war. Then follows a collection of souvenirs made by Boer prisoners of war. The tent is a representation of one used by the Boer delegates who gathered on the banks of the Skoonspruit to discuss peace proposals before leaving for Pretoria and finally Vereeninging. The chairs are those actually used on the occasion.|
