Must see, superbly curated
nov. 2021 • Par
Lindberg Victorian home / museum is a gem. Unlike similar attractions, thus is beautifully curated by Lady Katherine (my name for her). It does not look like a collection of curios but a real, lived in, home of the 19th century. And it still is a home which is perhaps why it is so good. A must see.

You must do this tour!

I knew nothing about the Victorian time when I went there and yet Katherine managed to pitch the tour on a level that has something for everyone. Tea and cake are not currently avalible (June 2021) but well worth a visit if you are interested in a trip down memory lane for young and old alike. Well maintained and inviting.

Enchanting tour of a bygone era. Worn around the edges as it should be
sep. 2021 • Familie
Even though the museum looks a little run down on the inside, especially in the drawing room, there is an authenticity to that which adds charm to the entire experience. The love, interest, and knowledge of the museum’s curator, and as she tells it, her mother before her, pours through every story told about each item.

A wealth of resources, time, love, and attention has been paid to build this up over many years. The richness of this is what we enjoyed as we visited each room, heard the stories and peered through items of that bygone era which for good or ill, shaped a lot of the world as we know know it.

Everyone of us had a favorite piece or favorite room at the end of the tour. We’d recommend it.

It was sad to think that all of this could be lost when this curator is too old to keep it going.

Katherine knows her history so well and the house truly represents the Victorian Era, I must see for any lovers of the Victorian period

Again impressed on re-visit
aug. 2021
I visited the museum again and was hugely impressed, again! What can one say about instantly stepping back in time and experiencing a Victorian family home as it was back then? There is now also the Lindfield Emporium - an authentic Victorian shop with many items that are for sale - a remarkable place. I love the photo studio with a typically Victorian painted backdrop in front of which you can take a selfie or just pose for a photo. (You have to use your smart phone camera). There are also Victorian outfits you can put on (at a fee) for the photos - how cool it that! I'm sure if I visit this place 5 more times, I'll see something new and learn something new every time. Katharine is unbelievably knowledgeable on all things Victorian - you can ask her just about anything.

An unexpected delight! So much more than what we expected.
jul. 2021
My wife is obsessed with victorian clothes, architecture, and furniture. She has had this museum on her 'things-to-do' list for a long time. She dragged me and our kids along for the outing. We were somewhat reluctant. But it was fascinating and amazing. An unbelievably knowledgeable guide. A beautifully decorated house that captures the era perfectly. Johannesburg has always been our home and this gave us a wonderful glimpse into our last.

A fascinating experience going back in time - so many interesting things are housed here, and the tour with Miss Love, who lives in and collects the things for this house is a must for anyone interested in history and Johannesburg. Well worth a tour!

Two hours passed in a flash. It’s a cliche but during those two hours, I really did feel like I had stepped back 150 years. I never knew I would have so many questions, and Katherine has an encyclopaedic knowledge. Couldn’t recommend this enough!

Very interesting visit.

A wonderful slice of the past! Katherine (who guided us through the house) was a literal walking encyclopedia. I learnt so much about how one would live in South Africa in the early 1900s. This hidden gem is a must see for the whole family!

One of the best Guided Tours I've been on and I love guided tours!
feb. 2020 • Par
Me and a friend spent a lovely hour with such a lovely and knowledgeable host just absorbing everything in the house. It was such a surprise to see how little we know of our past and also how different they lived back then and still how much we are still like them. She has such a beautiful collection of stuff and it honestly is as close to stepping back in time as we can get right now. If you are interested in the Victorian era, guided tours, antiques or just want to learn something new 10/10 would recommend. Not posting pictures cause you need to go!
