Fort Nongqayi Museum Village is a multifaceted complex that provides a wealth of insight into Eshowe's bygone years. Though the three-towered Fort Nongqayi is a product of poor construction and lack of materials, the Zulu Nongqayi Police who used to inhabit the fort were spared from battle and the fort never came under attack. The picturesque building now houses an impressive museum dedicated to Zulu history and culture. Tickets for the fort museum include a visit to the Mission Museum Chapel and the Vukani Museum. They can be purchased at Crafts of Africa, which has small collection of crafts and curios made by local rural crafters.
