The Port Natal Maritime Museum situated along the harbour is a little known tourist attraction in the city. Maritime history is not something that interests the masses but it’s a great place to snap some interesting photos.
The museum has two vessels that you can board and explore. The volunteers at this museum invest a lot of time into the restoration of these vessels and you’ll be amazed at the wealth of knowledge they possess on the maritime history of Durban.
The museum is small and can be completed in an hour or less, probably more if you’re the type of person that reads all the displays.
Not for everyone, teenagers will probably be bored. If you’re at Wilson’s Wharf and have a few minutes to spare then consider visiting it. Here’s a few pictures of our visit so you have an idea on what to expect.
