If you are a museum crawler, don't miss this one and don't be misled by the size - the museum is a modest house of the Settlers era furnished as it would have been in those days. Don't venture into that general area alone though, go in a group - PE's Central is suffering much like many other inner cities, of decay. Nearby is the Horse Memorial, which is a provincial heritage site - you might as well go and have a look there as well.

This place is full of history, and show how the people of that time lived in Port Elizabeth. It is a very important landmark and holds so much history of PE. If you are looking for a place like this, do your self a favor and go visit

Dont feel very safe in area. Lots of drug dealers and criminal elements in the area. I did not feel safe to park my car in the area. The museum is a good visit. Try go with a group of people.

Extremely interesting museum to visit - we spent a good hour looking through this well kept museum and will take visitors there as it's well worth a visit.
