KwaMuhle Museum
Vist the KwaMuhle Museum in Ordinance Road

The notorious building that was once the "Department of Native Affairs" where every black South African in Natal was required to register in the days of Apartheid, now houses a museum dedicated to tracing the history of racial laws in Durban, including memorable video and photographic exhibits. Despite this the building is known to all as KwaMuhle, meaning ‘place of the good one’, the name honouring a white man who ran the department but did his best to fight the system within its constraints.
