The Paul Kruger house is a very historic place and is very interesting. It is sadly in a bit of an inconvenient place and the surroundings are a bit shocking, but who cares! You will be inside the whole time

Home of the last President of the old Zuid-Afrikaanse Rupebliek. They are busy renovating but it is taking so much time. If you are from the Netherlands you must vissit to see the bonds between Konigning Wilhelmina and Paul Kruger

This is a very interesting museum full of original artifacts from when he lived there augmented by museum pieces from the same period to make it look like it is still being lived in. It was one of the first houses to have a telephone and there is a similar one hanging on the wall. It is only 25 Rand entrance fee and worth it. You start your tour in Mrs Kruger’s reception room where she did her sewing and entertained visitors. Next comes the President’s reception room where he received such notables as Cecil Rhodes. Through the bedrooms and kitchen to the outside and in ZAR Hall there is an exhibition of personal artifacts, posters etc along with a state coach and wooden wagon than the President bought but never used. At the far end is his state railway coach which he used to start his journey into exile. Worth a visit, and it has a little shop selling postcards and other souvenirs. There are ramps so it is wheelchair-friendly

Entrenched with the history and lifestyle of the Republic of Transvaal, Paul Kruger house takes you back to the Anglo Boer War and all the countries involved such as America, Russia, Germany, Holland and others against the Common Wealth countries such as England, Australia, Canada and others.

Besides the exhibits from other countries, the house has a typical warm feeling and still has all the old furniture and photo's of that era. It is well worth a visit and close enough to Pretoria Church Square to complete a perfect tour.
