The Wellington Museum features not only the cultures of various African ethnic groups, but also prides itself in having ties with countries as far afield as the USA, England, Scotland, France, and the Netherlands.

The museum also exhibits Stone-Age artefacts, a major collection of Egyptian artefacts and exhibits of various pioneers who made their mark on the history of Wellington and South Africa.

Many historical sites, as well as ancient San rock art, the graves of the Bains Pass builders and disused manganese mines can be experienced on routes in the Limietberg Nature Reserve.
