The residence of South African Boer hero Paul Kruger commands a deep love from the citizens. The house has been preserved in the state that it was when the president lived there. The building itself can claim a few curious novelties; it was one of the first electrically lit buildings in the city. The cement that went into its construction of such poor quality that it had to be mixed with milk rather than water. Exhibits within the house tell of Kruger’s historical struggle to provide a place and identity for his embattled people. There is a wealth of memorabilia in the house including pictures, furniture, paintings, items, statesman gifts, saddles, guns, carriages, a travel cart. It’s a small but quality attraction.

This type of museum is inherently small and parochial....but it's worth a visit if you have plenty of time to spend in Pretoria, or you live here. Good ambience to the site, well maintained, and friendly staff. Some sections could do with some more detailed explanations eg the exile hall - many exhibits lack information cards.
Really interesting to see how Pres. KRUGER lived and how many people around the world rallied to his cause.
Museum has wonderful collection of artifacts from Kruger's life in South Africa. Sadly, entire estate has been allowed to deteriorate, badly in some areas. Serious deferred maintenance must be attended to soon, or damage will be irrepairable. Unfortunate that such an historically important residence has been allowed to fall into such poor condition.
when we entered a group of other tourists left the place complaining about rude behaviour by staff. We were then approached by a man in a colorful t-shirt, wearing a basecap and making the moneysign in front of our faces. I was very irritated, since his behaviour was in no way that of an official. When I asked where the ticket office was, he pointed to a locked door, which he had the keys to . There was no pricelist and he didn't produce any tickets. He demanded 65 Rand per Person and by that point we decided, that we would rather leave. That changed his behaviour to openly agressive and physically pushing us out and telling us not to waste his time since he got more important things to do. Outside we met the guide of the group that had left before us, seemingly agitated about what had just happened to them. He was in the process of calling the Tourism Board...
As a Tourist Guide I enjoy taking tourists ti Kruger House
