Its a nice museum but I wish they had more history to offer. I must say it gives a good insight about the life and times of workers and how they lived in the society. Visit if you must as its a small museum and won't take too long.

An important place to visit if you want to understand more about apartheid and its impacts. Well worth a visit.

SO! have driven past this museum a thousand times but never gone in. Went there recently on a workshop. It's very interesting!
The exibits are looking a little tired in places but the content is there & is fascinating for locals & foreigners. Kwa Muhle covers what Apartheid was like in Durban. The Museum was originally a Pass office.
Definitely worth a visit. It's a small museum so doesn't take long.

This museum (just a 10 min walk from the main shopping street) gives very good and detailed insight into some aspects of the Apartheid and how simple laws were used to divide the population in South Africa.

It is not very big, so even if you are a history buff and try to read it all one hour will be more than enough, alas even if they tried to make the exhibition a bit more lively it is very heavy on text. If you are close by a short visit is no wasted time at all.

We had a guide; but, the place has everything well-laid out. Do your homework on apartheid and watch 1959's secretly-filmed "Come Back, Africa" for a history lesson. Very moving and hard to handle in one sitting. But, it showed in reality what this museum depicts with dioramas, pictures, letters....
