Discover the history of the Zulu war at Old Court House Museum

Once a courthouse, the Old Court House is the oldest public building in the central business district. It was loop-holed during the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879. It bore witness to both the South African Wars and the Bhambatha Uprising. More recently, it also served as a canteen and recruitment centre during the two World Wars and then later as a library, before being converted into Durban's biggest history museum. It boasts two floors of exhibition space depicting aspects of the region's early history.
