The Museum hosted another very successful Night at the Museum during the June school vacation. The Museum was packed with 1000 visitors who enjoyed all the offerings presented. The feedback from the visitors was very complimentary of the event and the highlight was the walk through the Victorian Gallery where the visitors got to interact with Museum staff who were dressed in period costumes and spoke about items relating to that period. There was so much to see and do on the night, the only complaint was that there was simply not enough time! Watch this space for news about the much anticipated Night at the Museum: Halloween Edition which will be held on the 25 October 2019. Tickets will be on sale from September on Webtickets. The KZN Museum is so grateful to the public for the amazing support.
