Reviewed February 20, 2013

An excellent place to view the history of the area. Well laid out with good information and a variety of exhibitions. Path to climb Talana Hill was not clear so we got a bit 'lost' and missed some of the info points - could do with revamping the path markers

Well laid out with local mining, glass manufacturing sections. Excellent area on Zulu bead work and meanings of patterns.
Good Zulu and boer war displays. We spent almost three hours and did not cover all the areas. Very pleasant tea room.

Very good museum with good shop and great place for lunch. The shop stocks the david Rattray cd compilation on the Zulu battles which is an excellent guide.

Excellent little shop at the museum, with some very interesting books, but a little expensive for my meagre means. Happy to see Miners' rest up and running again. The military history exhibition is one of the best I have seen in my life.

Great collection of general Victoriana, including an old train engine, set out in various themed houses. It is spread over a wide area of land, so you need time to walk around if you want to see it all.....shops and exhibition centre are full of the usual crafts and handwork. I enjoyed it, particularly the quirky restaurant, whose owner ruled the place with a rod of iron, hiding a great sense of dry humour.
