This is Paul Kruger's home. He was President of the Transvaal Republic during the Anglo-Boer War. The house is furnished in keeping with the late nineteenth century. It is interesting how he and his family lived.

although I have been there in the past I always find it so informative to go to Paul Kruger house as it reminds me of one of thd great statesman in South Africa! he was such a forlorn figure when he went into exile but he stood by his principles which is rare these days! something to be admired!!

We are so used to the trappings of the present day that it is difficult to look at things of 100 years ago and realise that this was relative luxury of the time, although it all looks so "simple". Few of the items on display were actually owned by Kruger but they have done a good job of assembling items... More

Good overview of an important time under Kruger. It is a look into the life at that time. Not all the furniture is from Kruger but it gives an insight view of how People lived at that time.

Another attraction worthy of a visit if you like South African History. My tip is not to forget to walk through the separate area at the back that displays the gifts oom Paul received from other heads of state, that was the most impressive part of the house for me. The building and garden is really well kept and clean.

Very sparse info and just a leaflet to help. No one else there when I visited. Lots of staff doing nothing. Perhaps a better leaflet or a trained guide.

Paul Kruger house is within the city and very accessible.please do not be over charged to visit the church square coz it's a 2minutes drive just down the road and the church is direct opposite the Kruger house!
