Provided some good background on one of the most significant characters in early SA history. The house not overly special, but at least some historical context.

This is a really interesting place to visit and learn about the history of Paul Kruger and early whiter rule in South Africa. The home is done up very well and the tour is interesting. Many historical artifacts including his personal train car.

A very unassuming "small" house for such a man. But, once inside the place seems a lot bigger. Still decorated and furnished from the old original days. A very rewarding visit. This really takes you back in time !

Very impressive display and historical guide not just to Paul Kruger but the history of South Africa and the Transval. Loved looking at the accolades given by other nations at the time. Train out the back very good.

The lions at the door were a gift by a randlord to the President so that he would pardon his brother in law who had taken part in the failed Jameson raid. So history repeats itself. The contents of the buildings is instructive and educational.
