The entry fee was quite reasonable and there is lots to observe- fully furnished rooms in the house and the train in the back of the house and a press room. I will say the place needs a bit of maintenance but all and all...More

This is a really interesting place to visit and learn about the history of Paul Kruger and early whiter rule in South Africa. The home is done up very well and the tour is interesting. Many historical artifacts including his personal train car.

Very impressive display and historical guide not just to Paul Kruger but the history of South Africa and the Transval. Loved looking at the accolades given by other nations at the time. Train out the back very good.

Good history lesson on Paul Kruger's life and the time frame in South African history. Not a large museum and but well done.
