“A hidden surprise”
Review of Bergtheil Museum

Reviewed April 21, 2018

Not well advertised - but really worth a visit for some interesting history of old Natal.
A house that has been converted into a museum that is well laid out and very friendly and helpful staff. If you are a jistory boffin, this is a place to add to your "to visit"list.

Went here as part of my daughters school project as she schools in the area. Have always seen the signs for this place but it was my first time here.

Really interesting. Small museum but lots to take in.

Reccomended.

Although located some distance from the city center, the Bergtheil museum specializes in the early history of the Germanic community in the area. With artifacts and well researched historical information, this is definitely one museum to visit if in the KZN area and with much time to spare. Definitely worth the visit especially for the history and culture buffs.

I love the authenticity of this museum. Small but well worth it. The museum has many different interesting areas to look at. The history of the area is interesting and the way of life so very different. Feels a lot like walking into a time capsule. Worth the visit.

A bit disappointing as there are a lot of repairs needed to the buildings. I am hoping that repairs and maintenance could be budgeted for with this Museum as I think it is important to protect these spaces for our children and their children. Don't think it will be around that long as it will soon need major renovation.
