This Pellissier museum was erected as the residence of the reverend J.P.Pellisier, the French missionary of the Paris Mission Organisation. The lifestyle of the period can be appreciated by visitors. Household items as well as clothes, vehicles, furniture documents and a photo gallery are on display here.

The Pellissier House Museum, named after the first French missionary in Bethulie, houses an exhibition on the missionaries who worked here and on the history of the region.

This mission building is the oldest settler built building still standing in the Free State.

The Museum was inorgurated on 20 July 1979.
