Overview
More
(Open by appointment only.) The stories that lived (and still live) within the walls of the Lindfield Victorian House Museum tell a tale of Johannesburg during an era that, more than any other, shaped urban Johannesburg as we know it today. A tale of the day-to-day family life and fashion trends, masters and servants, elegance, high culture, high teas, social etiquette and intellectual achievements. The spirit of this amazing era lives on in the museum and visitors not only learn its cultural history, but also experience the ambiance of a bygone world.

We visited Lindfield on Sunday 1st July and had an amazing tour going back in time to Victorian era. Katherine was a fabulous guide and there wasn’t a question she didn’t know the answer too. We learnt so much!

We visited this museum with my wife and my parents. The owner of the house has done an amazing job of recreating the experience of living in Johannesburg at the turn of the previous century. You need to book ahead of time.
