Venterskroon information centre and museum were originally the Magistrates Office and Police Station
Venterskroon is one of four towns located in what is known as the "Vredefort Dome". This is the site of what is believed to have been the biggest ever meteor to hit the earth 2 billion years ago.
The Vredefort Dome is a World Heritage Site and the Vredefort Dome Information Centre is located in Venterskroon.
Venterskroon was originally a mining town. Gold was discovered in the area in 1880 and people flocked to the area. Mining ceased in 1937 and most people left.
Some of the original buildings from the early 1900's are still standing.
