The Heritage Foundation’s archive has been operating since 2002 and is located in the Heritage Centre. As a significant international research facility, our archive offers valuable information on any facet of South African history and culture to all researchers.
Our archive contains unique document collections, photographs, architectural plans, maps, and audio-visual material.
The themes of the collection include the Great Trek, Anglo-Boer War and the history of the Voortrekker Monument. Further material include collections from Afrikaans cultural organisations like the Afrikaner Broeder Bond, and personal collections which contribute to the cultural and historical aspects of the Afrikaans speaking society in South Africa. Archival material of the Heritage Foundation and the Voortrekker Monument is accessible to researchers.
Our goal is to offer a service to the broader community and to convert the archive into a popular centre which is accessible to all researchers.
The archive is open for research during weekdays between 08:00 and 16:00. An entrance fee and tariffs for various services are charged.
