Cultural history museum in Pinetown


About half an hours drive from Durban is a thriving industrial and commercial town named after Sir Benjamin Pine, Governor of Natal (1873-75). At the heart of the town and just off the main road lies the Pinetown Library complex housing both the a library and a small yet interesting museum.

A range of topics are featured in the museum which focuses on local history. Displays reflect the cultural diversity of Pinetown, comfortably showcasing Zulu material culture alongside aspects of early settler history.

Anthropology is also covered in the museum and a replica of the famous ‘Mrs Ples’ is displayed alongside stone-age tools and artefacts. Between the library and the museum are various natural science exhibits.
