The Phansi Museum is a Museum of excellence that inspires all people to celebrate and respect the indigenous cultural history and heritage of Southern Africa.
Visiting the Phansi Museum offers a fun and fascinating look at the cultural history that shaped South Africa and the blend of backgrounds and ethnicities that make us so unique. We offer personal guided tours which bring visitors face to face with our past and present through fascinating stories and anecdotes. Museum hostesses and tour guides imbue museum tours with passion and anecdotal tidbits that make exhibits come alive.
A premier attraction of the Museum is the extraordinary collection of 30 life-sized puppets clothed in the ceremonial attire representing various ethnographic districts. Each puppet has a very specific dress code; the colour, material and design of clothing and jewellery indicating where the wearer is from, their age, gender and social status.
