Uitenhage - The Drostdy Museum

The Drostdy Museum in Uitenhage is situated in the original Drostdy building which was built in 1809.

American Born General Jacob Glen Cuyler was the son of a British Citizen who was at one time Mayor of Albany in the USA. Cuyler was sent to South Africa by his father who had bought him a commission in the British Military. Cuyler was posted to the Eastern Cape where he was

one of the founders of Uitenhage. When he was appointed the local Magistrate or Landdrost, Cuyler commissioned the construction of his new home and the Landdrost office  - The Drostdy - in 1809.

The Drostdy is now a museum that follows the historical development of Uitenhage and surrounding districts. It houses, amongst others, exhibitions on toys, porcelain, clothing and an archive library.

To confirm opening times it is recommended to call ahead of time.
