Somehow I never managed to go into this museum whilst I was working right opposite. It took a stopover on holiday to finally go in. What a pleasant surprise. The museum is split into different parts with a modern exhibition hall that is trying to tell the story of the varied peoples of Natal. Then there are some historic buildings which have been re-erected on the site. An old Voortrekker Church and farmhouse.
The new hall seems to want to try a little too hard to be inclusive of all influences. It was nicely done, but maybe a little too broad. The Voortrekker story was nicely told with both actual artifacts as well as a movie and texts. When we went the place was very empty which is a real shame as it is a nice little museum.
The place was reasonably newly renovated as well, so it was all in nice condition.
