Museum about early British settlers in SA

Macrorie House, Pietermaritzburg shares some important aspects of the South African history. This museum beautifully displays the world of early British settlers in the country. The house was built about 1860 and in 1867 was described as "the finest and best built family house in the city".

It is the only early to mid-Victorian double-storey house open to the public in Pietermaritzburg.
The house is furnished in Victorian style and contains Bishop Macrorie's lovely Private Chapel housing an altarpiece painted on metal brought with him from England in 1869.

There is a doll's house and a collection of old dolls in historical costume as well as a Touch Room for children.
