a very interesting visit

a visit to the house is very interesting, but the displays at the rear were even more interesting as the related to the Boer war seen from a different view to the British one

Worth a visit

Paul Kruger's home in Pretoria is nestled in between modern buildings and offices, but step in and you are transported back in time. Well kept. Good collection of antiques as well.

About Kruger House Museum in Gauteng
Sep 2019
The last house in which President Paul Kruger was to live, between 1883 and 1901, before he left South Africa to go into exile in Europe, the Kruger House Museum lies just a few blocks from Church square, where his bronze statue takes centre stage facing the Palace of Justice.

Lutseuds experience the history of the Paul Kruger for his entire life and why the Kruger National Park name after Him.

Nice to have seen it
Oct 2019
This is a rich man´s European home.
What is strange is that it is in Africa and the only old buildings in a modern neighbourhood. Similar musea you may find in Europe, but hardly with a personal train and trainstation. Still it was fascinating to see, worth a visit and very well kept.

My family of 4 visited the Kruger House Museum and found it to be educational. Learnt more about Kruger himself, who used to reside here, and also about the Boar war. There are several antique collections throughout the museum including a train coach used during Kruger’s time. Certainly would very highly recommend visiting this museum to any traveler.

I knew little about the Boar War until I visited this great museum. Paul Kruger, the leader of the Boar farmers who caused the British so much trouble, lived in this quaint town house during the conflict.

A little sad really.
Jul 2019 • Couples
Clealry some serious dollars need to be spent on this place because the main house is smelly, damp and a little sad. The old rail carriage needs a good clean and i’m not sure the static display in the old shed adds any real value. The staff are very nice and helpful but I don’t think this valuable part of Pretoria, and South Africas history, is truely being reflected for a remarkable statesman.

Fascinating
Jul 2019 • Family
The Kruger house museum was fascinating for us even though we ate American and not the knowledge about this period. The late 18th century is in great condition as is the train car. I especially liked seeing all the gifts he received from countries no longer in existence.

Makes History Come Alive!

I visited this Museum with Congolese friends, so we were all strangers in South Africa. Paul Kruger was a leader of the Boer War between the Afrikaners of Dutch origin and the British, which the Afrikaners lost. The home itself was very interesting with a lot of furniture, portraits, kitchen equipment. Also, there is an antique railroad car, plus a room full of historical documents related to early Afrikaner history. For history buffs, this is so interesting, increasing my American interest in this bit of African history.
