Nestled at the base of Talana Hill the museum is set in a 20 acre heritage park.

The Zulu name "Talana" meaning "the shelf where precious items are stored" is a most appropriate name for this large and varied museum.

The museum comprises 17 buildings, dedicated to subjects as diverse as war and agriculture, mining, industry and domestic life.
We are situated just outside the town of Dundee, Kwa Zulu Natal - South Africa, and are within short driving distances of some of the most famous battlefields in the country; Blood River, Rorkes Drift, Fugitives Drift, Isandlwana, Elandslaagte, Spioenkop, Colenso and the Siege of Ladysmith.
Open 7 days a week, 363 days a year, the museum takes about 1/2 a day for a quick visit. We close on Christmas and Boxing day

Registered site guides are available at an hourly rate.
