The Siege Museum (Ladysmith)


Considered to be the best Anglo - Boer war Museum in South Africa, the Siege Museum started as a market place in 1884.  When the Anglo Boer War broke out it was turned into a ration store. Unfortunately the rations that were kept in the store only lasted for 65 days.


Today it houses one of the greatest collections of artifacts from the Siege of Ladysmith and the Anglo Boer of 1899 to 1902.  The Siege Museum is situated in Ladysmith.


An entrance fee is payable to the museum.
