This elegant building was once one of the world’s most reviled buildings, host to the Department of Native Affairs. From here authoritarian apartheid policies were enforced across the populace. Today the building is a museum showcasing important portraits, documents and other memorabilia of the time leading up to the apartheid era and during. The content is starkly honest, yet free of any biases. It’s that very honesty that makes its impact so powerful. It also exhibits the growth of Durban as a secular cultural hotbed since the apartheid days. Most of the displays are in video and photographic form. Tourists often comment on this strange dual nature of the museum that at once acknowledges the sins of its past yet glorifies the contribution the population has been making.
