Addington Hospital is Durban's best known hospital and it has an extensive record of service. Located on Hospital Road on the Point between the Bay and the Ocean, this fascinating museum includes archives and artefacts dating back to 1900. In places this can be a maccabre exhibition, with medical equipment of a more unusual nature, illustrating the technological advances (thankfully) of more recent years. There is an underlying emphasis on the fortitude of the human spirit, patients having to overcome quite primitive treatments, early in the hospital history. Visit this museum, be amazed and be thankful for modern methods.
