Paul Kruger House - Review
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.

Paul Kruger House, Pretoria Reviews
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.
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.
As a Tourist Guide I enjoy taking tourists ti Kruger House
Nice place to visit if your are in town. Takes about 30-60 minute time
Well maintained house museum. Really enjoyed going there.
