We didn't, but luckily the guide agreed to show us around anyway. There is a bit of everything -- example of a late 19th-early 20th c Cape Dutch house and furnishings, many African -- particularly Zulu -- artifacts and a wonderful collection of paintings by Barbara Tyrrell of the traditional costumes of the various peoples of Southern Africa. Tyrrell was not simply an ethnographer but a talented artist and portraitist.

Belongs to university of KZN. Doesn't seem to get many visitors. You get shown round by guide, who knows his stuff. Some interesting old furniture and artefacts.
