Phuthadikobo Museum


This small museum, in what used to be Mochudi's first school, has some interesting exhibits on Mochudi's history, although opening hours are best described as 'whenever the caretaker happens to be around'. If you'd like to see inside, ask around and the locals may be able to rustle up a key. It's on top of the hill overlooking town.
