TThe Moruleng Cultural Precinct is a 21st century museum space that celebrates the cultural history of the Bakgatla-Ba-Kgafela. It is unlike any exhibition that community-owned museums have developed in the past. It is both a highly conceptual and an immersive space that stimulates the creative and critical thinking of visitors. We create a visitor experience that encourages interaction and participation through interactive drumming, preparing meals using the indigenous method & traditional food tasting as well as plastering floors using cow dung as it was done by our forefathers. We make sure that our tours are not just about oral presentation but also practical experience of the life of a Mokgatla (The people of Bakgatla ba Kgafela tribe). Exhibitions at the Moruleng Cultural Precinct cover traditional Batswana knowledge (indigenous) systems; an analysis of colonial collections and representations; the recorded history of the Bakgatla-Ba-Kgafela; oral traditions; a reconstruction of an Iron Age settlement and an exhibition in the old Dutch Reformed Church building that explores the influence of Christianity.
