Koopmans de Wet House is the oldest house museum in the country.
This house museum was originally built as the home for a well-to-do Cape family during the late 18th century and houses some of the best pieces of Cape furniture and silver in the country.

In addition to that, is a priceless collection of ceramics.
The house opened its doors as a museum in 1914, after the deaths of its last private owners, Marie Koopmans-De Wet and her sister Margaritha.
Marie, after whom the Museum is named, was well known during the South African War for her help to the orphans and widows of the Boer republics.
