The Oude Wijnberg Museum at Wynberg Boys’ High School
Accommodated on the ground floor of Silverhurst Manor House across the playing fields from the main school building, the Oude Wijnberg Museum is a fascinating combination of displays, memorabilia, and archival records of the Wynberg Boys’ High & Junior Schools across the years. Inspired by the displays of memorabilia lent by old boys during the schools’ 150th celebrations in 1990, the museum project was initiated by former headmaster, the late Mr Rowan Algie, to be opened officially by former headmaster, Mr Bruce Probyn in 1993. With the dedicated support of succeeding headmasters, Messrs Keith Richardson & Jan de Waal, and the invaluable contributions of senior staff and Old Boys, the museum continues to expand year-on-year.
Normally open to the public on Tuesday afternoons during school terms, and on pre-advertised days during major school events, visits during the 2020 pandemic are by appointment-only and subject to the regulations applicable to the relevant stage of national lockdown.
