This is worth visiting however I found the material was difficult to follow. This was probably because they were trying to cater for many languages. However, from what I could understand, it was very informative and I was amazed at the legacy that just under 300 people from France have left. Amazing story.

A well organised informative museum with well informed staff. Apart from the Huguenot content the history of the Cape of Good Hope is well covered. Outside the gardens were in full bloom which is a reminder of the floral kingdom that the museum is in.

I was so pleased to be able to visit the monument and Museum. It saddens me when cultural heritage sites are abandoned to the vegetation as is the case in Pietermaritzburg. Well done and keep it up.
