Display & Design (Exhibitions)

Our prime aim is to provide the public with a rich source of cultural and natural history experiences. Our displays are set in some of Kimberley’s enchanting historic buildings and other fascinating locations.

At the Atlas Street location a recent addition made in 2009 showing the research done on the Liberation Struggle as it touched on the lives of the people in the Northern Cape, are relevant and enlightening to all of our users.

The Ancestors Gallery; Enviro Zone, Convent School Display, Siege Gallery and Hall of Religions are popular attractions and a constant source of reference to schools, local and foreign visitors

Extensive renovations done at the Alexander McGregor Memorial Museum in Chapel Street includes three new displays namely Malay Camp, Kimberley Firsts and the History of Kimberley and its Schools and Churches.


The Duggan-Cronin Gallery, houses the valuable photographic work by Alfred M. Duggan-Cronin in the excellent “Thanda Bantu” exhibition. .
A selection of Jill Adams’s illustrations from the Gant Collection, as featured in the “Birds Around Us” publication by Richard Liversidge, are currently on show at the gallery.

Regional museum work includs a display on the “Upington 26” which was the product of research done by our museum history department and the Display Section’s Tanya Cilliers.in the Upington Museum.

Together with researchers and collection managers, this section is responsible for the maintenance and development of all the displays.

Desktop and design work comprise the bulk of our daily routine. We produce material for professional officers to be used at conferences and for publications.
Some of the latest publications that we contributed towards include the Green Point, Malay Camp, and Centenary booklets and McGregor Museum Annual Reports.

We continuously endeavour to produce display and design work of high quality.
