  • The National Museum contains the historical summary of the young country. It has a small and curious collection but enough to know a little about that beautiful culture. Nothing very modern but it has its charm.

  • At the entrance a little below, the king's mother a little below, there is a photograph of the Prime Minister, and the position is understood. The inside is a photograph of the clothes and the lead dance of men and women, the belt made from old life goods, plates, earthenware shells, beads. Banknotes and textbooks. The corners that introduce nature are crops and fruits that are cultivated. Old house outside. The Capitol is next door.

  • It gave me a bit of insight into my heritage .The staff showing us around looked very disinterested and tired. Some parts of the museum like the car showroom can be upgraded. Cars had a flat tyre and not polished.
  • Wide range of historical tools and artefacts. Great curation of historical timeline. Unnerving linguistic discrepancies between Siswati and English texts but all in all a must see.
