The Monument Function Centre in Pretoria is based just to the side of the highly visible and historic Voortrekker Monument. This is one of the most prominent South African museums, and has enormous historical value. In addition to this, it is an incredibly beautiful and well-designed building in this area. It was opened in 1949 in order to commemorate the pioneers (called Voortrekkers), who moved from the Cape inland towards the Pretoria area in order to find new pastures and new commerce opportunities.
The hardships they endured include scaling and crossing mountain ranges, fording large rivers, and battling wildlife and predators on their journey, and there was often conflict with indigenous tribes. These families of mostly Dutch and French Huguenots endured this long trip with only ox wagons and tradition. Their trials and tribulations are documented on the walls of the magnificent Voortrekker Museum. There is also a Hall of Heroes, which showcases the most prominent and courageous figures throughout this grand journey (or the Great Trek, as it was called). The Voortrekker Museum still remains one of the most popular museums in the country, and is a national heritage site.
At the Monument Function Centre, we are proud to be based next to this historic landmark. It is lit up at night, stands out on a koppie (hill), and is hard to ignore. The gravitas of the monument is matched only by the romance of the beauty that surrounds it, and at night, the lights of the city of Pretoria is visible from our premises. We are located inside a nature park, where indigenous fauna and flora are preserved, and the African sunsets throw a wonderful glow over our premises, which makes us one of the most desirable and affordable conference venues in Pretoria, and even Gauteng as a whole.
