Attractions near the Protea Hotel Capital
Visit the Kruger House Museum
Kruger House is known for being the last residency of former president Paul Kruger, who lived here between 1883 and 1901 before leaving the country to go into exile in Europe. The house’s interior has been recreated to reflect the period when Kruger and his second wife, Gezina Kruger, lived there. You can find numerous fascinating artifacts on a walk-through of the house, including the knife that Kruger used to amputate his own thumb after a shooting incident.
The house effectively serves as a time capsule, offering intimate glimpses into this iconic figure’s everyday life, as well as South Africa’s complex political history.
