Since the establishment of the museum in the Old Mission Church in 1975, this building has housed the administrative offices. A collection of pulpit Bibles and church artefacts including old wedding dresses form the focal point of the church with its original pulpit, pulpit cloth and wall text painted by Mr Nico Adriaan van Tuhra. Other important permanent exhibitions are the Indigenous Medicinal Plant research project displayed in one wing, the FranÃ§oise Krige collection of paintings and memorabilia and the T.O. Honiball collection of cartoons.
In 2007 the old Mission Church celebrated its 100th anniversary.The archive which adjoins the church is an important research centre which contains a comprehensive collection of historical documents and photos relating to Montagu the district and people as well as the museum library.
The KWV buildings on the corner of Long and Kohler Streets that were acquired in the 1990â€™s are fine remaining examples of historical industrial architecture in a rural area. The museum restored the enormous faÃ§ade to its former glory, and current plans include the permanent exhibition the museum collection of agricultural vehicles and artifacts in the enclosed courtyard behind the complex, as well as Art in the recently opened KWV Art Gallery.
