Description
The Museum is home to the largest collection of money formerly used in South Africa, as well as housing extensive historical records stretching back to the early origins of Johannesburg.

As the only banking and money museum in South Africa, it is the custodian, not only of South Africa’s banking history, but also of the economic, political, and social changes that are often so dramatically reflected in these currencies.

Educating young South Africans about banking and finance - From displays of cowrie shells - primitive money from centuries ago - and Venetian glass beads, also once used as a currency - to coins recovered as treasure from sunken ships, all the way through to exhibitions on bank-related crime and how to use an ATM - its collection of over 600 money boxes, some dating back to the early 1800’s, reminds one of the days when young children were taught the wisdom of saving.

Kruger Park - Pretoriuskop
Kruger Park - Pretoriuskop (Website)

When the world was still young, some 3 500 million years ago, molten rock forced its way through the earth's crust and solidified to form the spectacular granite outcrops where Pretoriuskop Rest Camp is now nestled. The impressive granite dome known as "Shabeni Hill" is not far from the camp, which is found in the south-western corner of the Kruger National Park. It is immediately apparent to any visitor that Pretoriuskop is unique as brilliant red trees adorn the camp, pre-dating the decision to make exclusive use of indigenous plants in laying out rest camp gardens. Nostalgia prompted an exception to the rule for Pretoriuskop, the Kruger National Park's oldest rest camp, and exotic flowering plants were allowed to stay, enhancing the strong sense of the past that is so pervasive.
