Kruger House, Pretoria - Built in 1884, it housed the then President Paul Kruger. Milk was used, instead of water, for mixing the cement from which the house was constructed, as the cement available was of poor quality. The house was also one of the...More

Unreal to "feel" how the President lived! Except for the classy furniture, the lifestyle was very basic! The cole stove in the kitchen, the basic kitchen utensils and even the basin. It reminded me of how I grew up in the 1960's! Their religious lifestyle...More

I am not over excited with this property. Not for families with little kids Not really in a nice part of town either - but I suppose if you are historically orientated - it is okay

When you walk into the house, you are pulled into another century, when Paul Kruger was president of South Africa. Adding to the experience is the period architecture, with its dark interior and heavy furniture. I came to South Africa from the U.S., and before...More

I really enjoyed our visit here. It's not a large house but there's plenty to see, not just in the house itself (the contents of which is remarkably complete) but also outside. It will give you a very good and fascinating insight into the life...More

Although very small, this house offers a good look at how Kruger lived. It was very modest for a man of such distinction, considering the splendour of the present ruler's palaces.

One interesting and polarizing figure, Paul Kruger definitely deserves a double take. A glimpse into his life and later years can be achieved through a visit to the Kruger Museum in Pretoria. The museum itself just doesn't show visitors what his living conditions were like...More
