No 7 Castle Hill Museum
No 7 Castle Hill Museum is situated on Castle Hill, Port Elizabeth, above The Feather Market Hall and below The Athenaeum.
This is the oldest dwelling in Port Elizabeth in its original state. It was built by the Rev Francis McCleland in 1827, having purchased the land for three pounds and three shillings. The museum is set out as a home representing domestic life between 1840 and 1870.
There are many interesting items on display including a Toy Museum with a wonderful collection of dolls. The original well is still working in the cobbled courtyard. Children are well catered for with the Fairy garden and a Treasure Hunt.
‘Old’ Port Elizabeth is truly captured in the ambience of the building and the interior.
