I loved visiting this place. Make sure you take the audio tour which is really well done however it’s not advertised very clearly and you could easy just walk around. Well worth visiting just do some forward planning if using the loos! See photo

Melrose House is a stately mansion and museum located on Burgers Park in Pretoria, South Africa. Since there was a cost to visit the museum of R22, we did not visit the place but saw it only from the outside. There is free parking there.

The rich history of this manor house right in the heart of the city. Step inside to a forgotten era of simpler pleasures.

The inside of this state house is amazing with its stained glass, wooden finishes and plastered ceiling. The dining room where the peace treaty was signed is impressive to say the least.

We had a lovely guide, you can walk through the whole house, and see all the lovely Victorian feeling and furniture. The old photo's were very interesting.
