An impressive central dome rises to 48m, and is surrounded by 4 smaller domes. Each of the smaller domes has a statue which represents art, literature, music and commerce. This impressive building also houses Durban's Natural Science Museum, a public library, auditorium, and the Durban Art Gallery. Items to see include a dodo skeleton, Egyptian mummy, and plenty of other fossils.
