The Irish House Museum – Polokwane

The Irish House Museum is also known as the Polokwane Cultural History Museum and has displays on the history of Limpopo area cultural groups and some archaeological finds from nearby sites. It also has a number of exhibitions on the Revised National Curriculum Statement, an outcomes-based education initiative. The building was initially built by a German in 1886, burnt down in 1906, rebuilt in 1910 and then sold to an Irishman in 1920, who traveled overseas to import clothes for "fashion-conscious ladies and gentlemen" of Polokwane.
