Reinet House Museum built in 1812 to serve as the Dutch Reform Church parsonage, is the largest of the public museums in Graaff-Reinet. The main level is set with period furniture that harkens back to the day when Minister Murray and his family called the building home. Downstairs you can find an impressive collection of old-time fashion among other mildly entertaining smaller exhibit rooms. Behind the house, wander through the courtyard and visit the wagon shed and the millhouse. Note however, that these are not original pieces, unlike the Black Acorn grape vine that was planted in 1870 and now boasts to be one of the largest in the world.
