Tribute to our past, Light for our future
The Pniël Museum is much more than just a museum. It tells the story of how a former Mission Station, established by the Apostolic Union in 1843 for the freed slaves and other blacks, grew and developed into the peaceful village of today.
As one walks / strolls through the rooms of the 17th century farmhouse of Papiere Molen – which is now the museum – one gets the sense of a humble but proud community that is at peace with itself. The professionally laid out photos, stories and artefacts keep the visitor enthralled, captivated, while time seems to take you back to 1843 when the first freed slaves came to start a new life here.
Light meals and cake served daily: Eat in or Take-away.
Hours: 10:00 – 17:00 daily.
