Ficksburg Attractions


The Pinedene Small Arms Museum Pinedene Small Arms Museum is an accredited private museum, privately funded and located on the farm Kromdraai in the Ficksburg district of the Eastern Free State. It came into existence in 1992 when it was registered as an Institutional Member of the South African Museums Association.
C R Swart Prison The focus of the museum is, as the name implies, on military firearms and militaria, but also included and separately displayed, is a sizeable collection of Sporting weapons. The military display consists of infantry weapons from the various conflicts in which South Africa has been involved, including weapons from the opposing forces.
Gumtree Mill An old mill which is sadly no longer in use. Although the number of craftsmen who are able to work in sandstone is dwindling rapidly, there remain a few people who still practise this unique craft.
The White Mischief The White Mischief which has gained fame as the only floating cigar bar in Africa.
Franshoek Polo School As one of the more established polo clubs in South Africa, Franshoek offers a unique polo experience. Practice chukkas are usually played three times a week and, for the spectators, sipping ice cold champagne whilst watching the game, is nearly as exciting as being on the polo field itself.
