Great Brak River Museum

This Museum occupies an old school house that was built in 1902. It explores the history of the village of Great Brak River (which was founded on the arrival of the Searle family in 1859) and houses a small collection of artefacts from the indigenous Khoe and Khoisan people. It contains a large and important collection of local photographs dating back to the early days of photography (which was introduced in 1839).

The Museum was begun in 1975 by Russell Searle (a director of the Searles Shoe Factory which was once one of the largest employers in the village), and the collection was later donated to the Great Brak River Municipality (now incorporated into the Mossel Bay Municipality).

The Museum houses the local tourism information centre. Visits can be arranged to the village's restored 1924 hydro-power station on request.
