The Luthuli Museum is one of the many tributes to those who fought for the freedom and peace of a nation, risking their lives and reputations. They had as their vision a country in which citizens of all colours and creeds would be considered equal. Chief Albert John Mvumbi Luthuli was one of these freedom fighters, who was later awarded a Nobel Peace Prize.

The museum dedicated to this man is situated in the town of KwaDukuza Stanger (formerly known as Groutville) in KwaZulu-Natal, right in the home that Chief Luthuli occupied in 1927. This is just 45 minutes from Durban, which is the capital city of the province and offers an impressive array of cultural, natural and historical tourist attractions.

The Luthuli Museumís exhibition includes old newspaper clippings, photographs, and mementoes dating back to the early years of the Apartheid regime in South Africa, when non-white citizens faced massive political and social injustices and even torment. These keepsakes tell the fascinating, exciting and sometimes sad story of the efforts of Luthuli and many of his comrades, and the roles these ones played in the turnaround that South Africa has experienced and undergone. This is all set within scenic gardens, and exudes a restful ambience.

The Luthuli Museum was opened in 2004, after having been declared a National Monument. In addition to Luthuliís home, the museum includes an interpretive centre in which art exhibitions are hosted on a temporary basis.

Official tours of the museum are conducted for students, tourists and other members of the public in order to introduce these ones to some of the greatest political figures of the last few generations. Customised tours are available, as are specific art and poetry programmes that expose visitors to other fascinating aspects of South African people and their unique context. In order to open up this opportunity to as many folk as possible, entrance to the museum is free of charge.
