Very impressive display and historical guide not just to Paul Kruger but the history of South Africa and the Transval. Loved looking at the accolades given by other nations at the time. Train out the back very good.

Good history lesson on Paul Kruger's life and the time frame in South African history. Not a large museum and but well done.

Unreal to "feel" how the President lived! Except for the classy furniture, the lifestyle was very basic! The cole stove in the kitchen, the basic kitchen utensils and even the basin. It reminded me of how I grew up in the 1960's! Their religious lifestyle...More

I am not over excited with this property. Not for families with little kids Not really in a nice part of town either - but I suppose if you are historically orientated - it is okay

When you walk into the house, you are pulled into another century, when Paul Kruger was president of South Africa. Adding to the experience is the period architecture, with its dark interior and heavy furniture. I came to South Africa from the U.S., and before...More
