The Goetz / Fleischack Museum was one of the first houses erected around the New Market Square (Nieuwe Marktplein) ca. 1860.

The house has been restored and is a Karoo-style dwelling with yellow wood shutters, ceiling and inner doors and peach-stone-floors in the pantry and kitchen. The walled-in complex includes a stable and a coach-shed.

The dwelling originally belonged to A.M. Goetz, magistate during the First War of Independance (1880 -1881). After 1902 his daugther and her husband, A.R. Fleischack, founder of one of the oldest existing firms of attorneys in Potchefstroom, occupied the house.

The house was declared a national monument in 1984 and was opened as a museum in 1985.
