Consisting of several buildings and spread over an 8ha section of farm on which the first major battle took place between Brit and Boer at the start of the South African war of 1899-1902, the Talana Museum is Dundee town’s main attraction and a worthwhile stop when visiting this part of the KwaZulu-Natal Province.
