Overview

TThe diamond town of Kimberley is home to the Kimberley Mine Museum, one of the Northern Cape’s most popular tourist attractions and a tribute to the diamond-digging days of old. The museum includes viewing decks overlooking the famous Big Hole, as well as a number of heritage buildings. Many of the buildings here are originals that have been moved over the years to this spot. Why not immerse yourself in the world of diamond mining and take the guided tour of a once-operational diamond mine, which descends a staggering 840m below the earth? Art lovers are also in for a treat. The Wildebeest Kuil Rock Art Centre showcases San art, both ancient rock art and contemporary creations. Not far away is the William Humphreys Art Gallery, specialising in South African artists but also offering a fine collection of 16th and 17th century Flemish, Dutch, English and French masters.
