Old Courthouse Museum, also known as the Local History Museum, is one of the city center's oldest buildings. Today it displays relics from Durban's 1920 Art Deco era, as well as a three-dimensional exhibit that lets you walk though a model house and apothecary from Durban's bygone days. There is also an impressive tribute to Kasturba Gandhi, the wife of Mahatma Gandhi, which recognizes her contribution and struggle for equal rights alongside, and often independent of, her husband.
