KwaMuhle Museum offers a glimpse into Durban's turbulent past. Set in the former offices of the Native Administration Department, it was from within these walls that the infamous "Durban System" of urban racial segregation was enforced, laying the foundations for the future apartheid policies that overtook the country. Poignant photo exhibits depict the city's development, life in the surrounding townships, and the Cato Manor riots, and pay tribute to the city's influential leaders who struggled for equal rights. Temporary exhibits highlight international human rights movements and their intersections with South Africa's experience.
