First rate interactive museum and publications and momentos to take away. A painful part of Durban's history even the name means a beautiful place. I like collecting the old postcards from there. One of my main stops when showing around visiting friends. An essential part of my socio-political tour of my home town.

Simple, engaging yet fun look at South African History that will appeal to all ages! I really enjoyed myself here. It was awesome that I never felt that stereotypical, maudlin, boring-old-people vibe that one thinks that a museum is!

This museum tells an important story of South African struggle. It details passbooks, and why many residents fought to not carry them. I kind of wish this museum was done a little bit better, as the content is great. The displays are a little drab, and lots of places are just big signs full of text. Good for history-buffs, not so much for amateurs, and especially boring for the little ones.

As a museum it's very old school, not particularly inspiring nor interesting.

Nostalgic for those who grew up in this era under that regime', but interesting non the less for those who did not have to live through it. To forgive we must not forget and experience it on walls such as these in places like this.
