This used to be a great tourist attraction when we were kids. The house has all the personal items of Paul Kruger before he fled the country. You can even view his pee-pot!

Good to see , but this is not my best souvenir. You will see where Paul Kruger lived, and what he did for this country.

Although we didn't have very long for our visit it was very informative and there was plenty to see. Many of our party enjoyed the railway carriage but the history was of particular interest as few of us knew much about Paul Kruger and his legacy. There is a lot to see and it would be easy to spend a... More

A visit that every South African should do at least once in his/her life. A true representation of the living conditions of Paul Kruger and his family

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.

Kruger house is a big part of our history. It still is in a good condition. Lots of antiques to see.

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.
