On approaching Kwa Muhle Museum one is struck by the elegance of the arch lined veranda and large sturdy copper covered entrance doors. This building, once the headquarters of the cities’ infamous Native Administration Department and the centre of Durban’s harsh system of labour control has been transformed into a museum seeking to reflect Durban’s urban growth, and the history of its residents from a range of perspectives. Visit the Kwa Muhle Museum and discover


what life was like in and around Durban during and leading up to the apartheid era. Ponder over the exhibits which include photographic prints of township life, and reflect on the contributions of ordinary people who laid the foundations of Ethekwini's development as one of Africa’s leading cities.
