Walter Battiss Art Museum
"My father was a waterfall and my mother was a butterfly"
Come and see what King Ferd III got up to! "I invented myself" Walter Battiss used his imagination, can you invent yourself?
The Walter Battiss Art Museum is housed in a two storied house where the Battiss family ran the Battiss Private Hotel from 1914 to 1917. Battiss was born in Somerset East and lived here until the age of 11. The town and surrounding area held a special place in his heart and he bequeathed his personal collection to the people of Somerset East.
Take a stroll through this collection. Don't forget to watch the video, it's like meeting the artist himself.
Refreshments will be served at the Museum. We donate all the profits for this tour to the Walter Battiss Foundation in order to sustain the museum and Walter Battiss's legacy for the generations to come.
