Histórico

[Source - the Msunduzi Museum website http://www.msunduzimuseum.org.za, 2018: Since the 1990’s, the Msunduzi Museum in Pietermaritzburg an agency of the National Department of Arts and Culture has been transformed from a historically single-themed museum to one that depicts the heritage of different cultural groups of KwaZulu-Natal.

The museum was created in 1912 as a tribute to the Voortrekkers. Voortrekker history is the main focus in the Voortrekker Complex, i.e. the historic Church of the Vow, the Andries Pretorius House and the E.G. Jansen Extension.

The Voortrekker Memorial Church and historic Church Hall were also recently acquired for the Museum by the National Department of Arts and Culture

The Main building is home to a variety of cultural-history exhibitions which are also constantly being upgraded and expanded, like ‘ A Tapestry of Cultures’ on the Mezzanine floor. Those interested in the history of the Struggle for Democracy, may find the Birth of Democracy Display on the ground floor informative.

The Museum also boasts a replica Hindu Shiva temple and a beautiful herb garden.]
