This is the place to go if you want to learn about how Blacks were treated if they want to get permit to seek work in Durban during the apartheid era between 1910 to 1975.
I took a visitor from Norway to this museum an felt VERY let down. The staff didn't even seem to notice that we were there. No friendly greetings, no informative help, just nothing. The displays were also very rundown.... Durban can and should do a better job of this very important museum!
