  • After many checks and a search of the site, I found this place. There's a sign outside the house that makes me come to the right place. It's a beautiful sea house with a beautiful flower garden.

  • A nice quick tour of the South African Malay and Indian history.
  • This is truly a place of Malay Heritage taking people back many, many years of how Malay people lived, holding onto their traditions and heritage (which is fading away as the years go by) , I love the setup of the museum, all the rooms are transferred into displaying, showing and giving you a true Malay culture/traditional experience, you will come across a Bridal room (known to the Malay people as the "Bruidskamer") for me that haven't seen or witnessed one with my very own eyes, I was in awe, just stepping into any of the rooms or walking down the house passages, amazed me, all the artefacts, photographs of years gone by, ornaments, clothes, mannequins with their traditional wear, and the Davidson couple that runs the museum is so sweet walking with you and patiently answering all your questions, they have a lovely garden where you can relax and have a picnic afterwards.
