The museum displays one of the worlds largest fossil collections and doubles as the local tourist information centre. (Western Cape Government accessed 2020 01 23)

The antiques and artifacts were collected largely by Fransie Pienaar but the collection is still growing through donations from past and present inhabitants of Prince Albert. (Towns in the Great Karoo accessed 2020 01 23)
