Maeder House is one of the oldest buildings in Lesotho, dating back to 1843. It was the home of missionary artisan and artist Francois Maeder. The gallery provides Basotho artists with a place to exhibit and sell their work.  The Morija Art Centre is adjacent to Maeder House located in a series of old storerooms christened Linotšing (The Beehive).

It currently serves as work and studio space for a number of artists. The aim for the complex is to provide artists and interested people with a space in which to learn, build their creativity and livelihoods. As the centre develops, it will not only provide mentoring and practical learning opportunities, space and equipment, as well as exchange programmes in the visual arts, craft and design, but also in other performing and practical arts. The concept is still in the developmental stage but already it is proving to be instrumental in developing a vibrant arts community in Morija.
