This is probably the only museum in the whole world dedicated to pigs and is situated at the Agricultural Research Council's Institute for Animal Improvement. The institute is situated just outside of Irene.
The museum offers a review of the development of pig breeds in South Africa. It was opened in 1996 to coincide with the 40th birthday of the Pork Improvement Testing Scheme.
The museum is open during office hours and arrangements can be made for visits during weekends
