Completed in 1910, the Durban city hall displays a fine example of Edwardian
Neo-baroque architecture. The current city hall is actually the second building
in Durban made for this purpose, as the first city hall was taken over by the
post office. During the late 1880's Durban started expanding at a rapid rate,
and it was decided that the city needed a much larger town hall. In 1903 the

The exterior features a dome, and a number of statues representing the Arts, music, literature, and commerce and industry. Inside the hall polished wooden floors, intricate stained glass, wrought-iron balustrades, marble pillars and ornate arches are displayed.

On the second floor of the building is the Durban Art Gallery, where an impressive collection of both international and South African art can be viewed. The Natural Science Museum is also housed in the building, and displays a unique variety of stuffed animals, birds, reptiles and insects, as well as a dodo skeleton and South Africa's only ancient Egyptian mummy.
