Port Natal Maritime Museum

Backed by a panoramic view of Durban Harbour, the Port Natal Maritime Museum offers an insight into the influence of maritime culture on local life while also reflecting on the rigours and romance of lives lived at sea. Amazing voyages, dramatic tales and old yet inspiring collections form the basis of an unforgettable experience, with attractions including the multi-ton floating vessels.

These exhibits are the steam tug JR More as well as the minesweeper SAS Durban and together with other exhibits like the Ulundi and NCS Challenger offer families and tour groups hours of exploration, fun and education.
