Display

Our 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 the two most recently completed Journey to Democracy and World War 1 permanent displays.

The Siege Gallery, Convent School display, Hotel Belgrave Room as well as the Kimberley Regiment, amongst others, came to life during the Night at the Museum events in 2007 and 2017.

Renovations done in 2007 at the Alexander McGregor Memorial Museum in Chapel Street, includes four new displays namely Malay Camp, Kimberley Firsts, Kimberley Schools and Churches and the History of Kimberley

The Duggan-Cronin Gallery houses valuable photographic collections. The Thanda Bantu exhibition features A.M. Duggan-Cronin’s work. This venue hosts temporary exhibitions yearly.

Wonderwerk Cave, Magersfontein Field Museum, Pioneers of Aviation Museum are some of the satellites we have to maintain.

Together with researchers and collection managers, the display team is responsible for the development and design as well as the maintenance of all of the museum displays.

Desktop design work occupies a major part of our work. We print in-house and install most  of our exhibitions with the assistance of the workshop team.
