Luthuli Museum

Chief Albert Luthuli was an extraordinary South African leader who set the standard for peace, humanity, equality and non-racism on the African continent. Today his legacy stands as an example to other African and global leaders.

This year the Luthuli Museum recognizes 50 years since Chief Albert Mvumbi Luthuli received the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, Norway in 1961. It was the first time the Nobel Peace Committee had looked beyond the borders of the West for a recipient and so Chief Albert Luthuli became the first African to receive this prestigious award.

The Luthuli Museum is about six kilometres from the N2 highway along the North Coast of KwaZulu-Natal. Visitors can walk through his original 1927 home, sit under the tree where he met United States senator Robert Kennedy or listen to his original acceptance speech.

Entrance is free. The Museum is open every day of the week. It is closed on Good Friday, Christmas Day and New Year's Day. For more information go to
