The Museum collection consists mainly of approximately 35,000 historic and cultural heritage items that are directly or indirectly related to the South African War of 1899-1902. They include many war-time letters. The website is a useful although rather general one. There is no means of searching catalogues without visiting the Museum, having made a prior arrangement to do so with the curator as there is no public access to the collections. This will need to be negotiated on a case-by-case basis, having made contact by telephone or email or in person if in Bloemfontein.
