History

The KwaMuhle Museum was originally the offices of the native administration Department, a central cog in the machinery of apartheid and the center of Durban’s harsh system of labour control. It is a fitting irony that the museum now displays reconstructions of the oppressive environments experienced by the black population of South Africa under apartheid, offering a window into the harsh realities of the period.
