It was cool to see this historic site and learn about what the buildings were made of back in the 1700s. The man working there was awesome, provided some real insight into the project and history of the place.

Beautiful old shop/house restored to its former glory. The guy tending the house was very informative and willing to answer questions. Only a short walk from the river and well worth the visit

I'm sure many people pass this by without realising what an historical place it is.

A visit here will not take you very long, 30 mins or so, but the curator will give you a detailed but not too boring introduction to the history of the place and the work which has been done on it.
A few explanation boards but not too many to bore you rigid
And it is barely 50m around the corner from Jonker Street

A gem. Give it 30 mins of your time.

Talk to Colin, the extremely friendly gentleman who runs this small museum where you can see how the original buildings were made. His English is perfect and so are his explanations.
