The town of Richmond, in KwaZulu-Natal, really has a multicultural heritage and this is evident in the exhibits at the Richmond Museum.

The area around Richmond is perhaps best known as the land where the Byrne Settlers settled in 1850. The museum has exhibits that show the tough life that faced these immigrants. Included in the exhibits are clothing and furniture.

Another exhibit describes what happened at the ‘Trewirgie’ incident and the Bambatha Rebellion.

Other exhibits at the Richmond Museum highlight the cultures of the Zulu and Indian communities.
