We had a guided tour and learned so much during our visit which was over 1 hr long. The owner has many interesting stories to tell so, so if he is around you are in luck.
This is a place where you should take time to learn about African arts.
Shame the museum shop was closed on that day as would have been happy to support the museum by buying souvenirs for friend and family.

Former Durbanite, visiting with my family from San Francisco, totally blown away by Paul Mikula's astounding knowledge of Africa art and culture. His captivating and animated story-telling are remarkable and held us spellbound for hours.
Highly recommended. This is my first Tripadvisor review.

This was an absolute highlight of our stay in Durban. Paul Mikula has assembled a vast, fascinating collection of garments, embroidery and accoutrements of the Zulu people in KZN and from other parts of Southern Africa. We had a guided tour with a very knowledgeable guide who gave us a terrific insight into the lives of the African people. Do not miss.

A museum unlike any other. I left feeling that I had really explored African culture assisted by the two guides that showed us round the exhibits, bringing them to life and sharing their personal in-depth knowledge of African culture. I can still remember everything.

Worth a visit! A beautiful showcase of thousands of Zulu artefacts. Gives you a real appreciation for design and South African history! Lovely shop to buy local products once your visit it done.

An absolute must to see if visiting Durban in South Africa . Beautifully set collection of traditional Zulu art and craft in a very interesting building as well. Do not miss visiting African Art Center next door with variety of beautiful art to purchase, in support local artists.

We had a great visit to the Phansi Museum. Thanks to the personal knowledge and stories of Ms. Nkosi, the museum director, who led us through the museum, the collections came alive. She is a wonderful guide to African culture, and the museum's artifacts are vivid and interesting. We highly recommend this easy-to-access museum in a safe neighborhood for a short visit if you're in Durban!

What a wonderful visit we enjoyed to this museum. I learnt so much from our wonderful guide, Phumzile. It may not be a typical museum but there are so many artifacts and so much to learn about South Africa.
