Tapestry of Cultures

Tapestry of Cultures

A few rooms on the mezzanine floor of the Main Building are dedicated to the cultural heritage of the main groups living in Pietermaritzburg and KwaZulu-Natal. The research for these displays was done in cooperation with members of the local community, which gives it a more personal and local atmosphere.

The Tapestry of Cultures Display was recently upgraded and some inter-active elements added. Visitors will for example learn more about the role of cattle in different cultures, and be able to touch and play a few traditional musical instruments.
