Learn about a man who waged a long war against the world’s largest empire at Kruger House Museum, the historical residence of the Boer leader and president of the Transvaal Boer Republic. One of the first houses in Pretoria to use electricity, the presidential building was built in 1884, using milk instead of water for mixing the cement. Tour rooms restored to their original state, and admire simple yet elegant tables, ceramic pieces, flower pots, and curtains. See the presidential state railway coach and gifts from Russia celebrating the Boers’ courage against British imperialism.

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. more »
It was my first time there and I enjoyed it very much. Everything are well looked after. We wanted to visit the church but it was closed on that day. Definitely a must visit!
Interesting insight into a leader that played a major role at a defining period in South African history
