  • This is the most intriguing museum's I have ever seen. The amount of detail in each room is absolutely breathtaking, from the wooden floors to the ceiling is an feast for the eyes. You are transported to an era that was fully functional without modern-day technology and its astonishing to comprehend how the people of this era lived and trived. I would recommend this glorious museum to each and every person. The Lady Katherine is the best tour guide I have ever met, she lives and embody this era with so much care and grace, it was an incredible experience to be able to take this tour with her. Thank you so very much for opening your home to us and sharing your passion and knowledge with us.
  • Absolutely mind-blown after my visit! The details, massive collection of period-true .... everything! And Catherine is a fount of knowledge on every article in the house, its uses, and how day to day life was lived in the early to late Victorian era. I did not know that this gem of a museum existed in Johannesburg and I've lived here all my life. Spoiler alert: there is a fantastical dolls house, entirely built and furnished by Catherine and her mother. It has to be seen to be believed!
