Bartholomeu Dias Museum Mossel Bay


The first building was built around 1830 by Alexander Munro from Scotland for £25. He operated a canteen on the premises where unruly seamen met. His son got the first permit to catch whales on the beach below. The front house is one of Mossel Bay’s national monuments. However, these buildings are not open to the public. Munrohoek Cottages
