Kalahari-Orange Museum

The highlight of this museum, which occupies the mission station established by Reverend Schröder in 1875, is the story of the Upington 26, who were wrongly jailed under apartheid. Other than that, there are a few printing presses, farming implements and some old photos of the town.
