Ouma Isie's is now the perfect place to visit ... out in the open air with proper social distancing and some peace and tranquility to refresh your body and soul. The Restaurant offers a variety of daily menu items and also caters for Functions, Children`s Parties, Kitchen Tea`s, Weddings, Conferences, Year-end Functions or any other special event or celebration.

MUSEUM: Visiting hours

The Museum is open to visitors on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 to 16:00. Special tours are possible on other days by prior arrangement - please enquire via:
info@smutshouse.co.za. 
We have kept our prices as low as possible in the foregoing years but need to align ourselves with other Heritage Sites. Bear in mind the entire homestead is private property and we benefit from no grants or subsidies. Many thanks for your support.

For any further information regarding the Smuts family or Smuts House and its history, please email us and we will assist where possible: info@smutshouse.co.za.

Thank you

The FRIENDS OF SMUTS HOUSE would like to thank all those people who kindly donated money as a result of our appeal via the Jan Smuts Facebook group during the Covid lockdown period. Personal notes of thanks were sent to individual donors, except those who didn't supply contact details, and to whom we now extend our sincere gratitude.

If you have donated (and didn't supply your email address), or if you still intend to do so, please fill out the form on the DONATE tab so that we can send our personal thanks.

Despite the response to our appeal during the Covid pandemic, which raised some R60 000, The Foundation remains in dire need of additional financial support so that any further donations will be most gratefully received.
