Durban City Hall Tours and Activities

Durban City Hall
Durban City Hall, in addition to being a gorgeous historic building in the city center, is also home to several attractions worth checking out.

Built in 1910, Durban City Hall—also known as eThekwini City Hall—is a building that's hard to miss. Its exterior is decorated in a neo-Baroque style – there are sculptures representing industry, art, literature, music and commerce as well as some representing patriotism and unity. The building is almost an exact copy of the city hall in Belfast.

The City Hall obviously is home to city government offices, but visitors will want to check out the Durban Art Gallery and Natural Science Museum that are also inside. The museum features a dodo fossil, among others.

Practical Info

The Durban City Hall is located on Pixley Ka Seme Street in the city center. The art gallery and museum are open Monday-Saturday from 8:30am-3:45pm. There's also a public library in the building, which is open Monday-Friday from 10am-5pm and on Saturdays from 9:30am-12pm. Admission to all of the attractions inside the city hall is free.
