Although very small, this house offers a good look at how Kruger lived. It was very modest for a man of such distinction, considering the splendour of the present ruler's palaces.

One interesting and polarizing figure, Paul Kruger definitely deserves a double take. A glimpse into his life and later years can be achieved through a visit to the Kruger Museum in Pretoria. The museum itself just doesn't show visitors what his living conditions were like...More

This is a short walk from the downtown area, well preserved property. You can see it quite well from the street and even sneak peak into the house. We are not too much of history geeks so we settled with that.
