  • The first thing that stood out as I walked into the old Native Administration Building was how clean and well preserved it was. Staff at reception were extremely helpful and kind. It was refreshing to experience good service from government employees. The museum itself is small with only 4 main display rooms. One of which has most of Durbans history in the form of story boards and sculptures depicting life at the time. There is a large room where an HIV AIDS gallery is held. There was too much writing on the walls. Literally. Another room showcased stories and paraphernalia of the Durban Old Boys, men who fought in World War 1. Although the information and faculties were relevant and informative, I expected more. Toilet facilities available. Ample parking. Safe.
  • I love it!!! It has this beautiful garden. 😍😍😍😍
