Jasper House Museum


Jasper House Museum has collections related to the Migrant Labour System and the history of mining in Oranjemund, art installations, wildlife, geology, archaeology and conservation, everyday life in Oranjemund and the future of the town.

The Jasper House Museum is an effort by the community of Oranjemund, led by OMDis, Namdeb and OMD 2030 to reflect on the town’s history and think forward to its future. This museum is situated in what was the first mine General Manager’s house. It was used for various purposes over the years before becoming the heritage centre in 1989.

Over many decades, volunteers slowly built a collection for the museum consisting now of over 4000 objects. On display is a selection of this collection showcasing the social, mining and natural histories of Oranjemund and the surrounding area.

The interior of the museum was renovated and the displays were revamped in 2021 in a combined effort by OMDis, Namdeb, and OMD2030.
