Khama III Memorial Museum

Located at the base of the Thataganyana Hill. The museum opened on 19th October 1985. Housed in the "Red House" which was built around 1910 as a place that Khama could host/house his business partners. The Museum came about due to and through the sterling work and efforts of volunteers which we will expand on in due course. Even with very limited access to resources (AKA funds) the institution has developed as a prime centre and repository of heritage, culture, arts and important local archival material. The "Red House" is a little difficult to find but if you head up towards Letlhakane and Orapa on the Orapa road, take a turning on your right on Museum Road and just to the North of Serowe Hill sits the museum.

The interior of the Red House has several displays which we will make a subject of blogs but notable in the broad subject matter relating to the locale, people of interest and culture not to mention art.

Hopefully as we explore more issues in future blogs we will encourage more visitors and appeals for funding to support the on-going work.
