Simon's Town Historical Society

The Simon's Town Historical Society was established in 1960 to collect information and artefacts with a view to establishing a Museum in Simon's Town. This aim was realised and the Simon's Town Museum opened in 1977. Some of our functions are:1) The preservation and promotion of the rich cultural heritage and ongoing history of this unique naval town; 2) The collection, collation, preservation and exhibition of objects, documents, photographs and books concerning the history of Simon's Town.

The Society can undertake certain genealogical research on local Simon’s Town Families using the records kept in the Simon’s Town museum and local churches. The Museum also has a good collection of photographs, maps and plans relating to Simon’s Town and its residents.
