A short distance to the east of the Dick King statue at the bottom of Gardiner Street is the Maritime museum. It is set on-board three South African ships - two tug boats, the Ulundi and the JR More, and a minesweeper, the SAS Durban. There are artifacts, photographs and memorabilia relating to Durbans long-standing relationship with the sea, and what better place to house such a museum, than on three seafaring vessels. As a result, the whole experience gives even the hardiest landlubber a taste of the sea.

Fun for everyone. Durban's only amusement park, situated on the Marine Parade. It is a wonderland of family fun and fantasy, offering breathtaking rides on an aerial cable way, tilt n whirl, dogems and the hair-raising swing-boat, to mention just a few. There are also plenty of rides for the little ones, such as the bumper cars, a carousel and kiddy-rides. There are plenty of thrilling adult rides for the adrenaline junkies too! Of course, this is no Disneyland, and children who are used to a larger scale park may be disappointed. Rides are moderately priced, but costs can add up. Funworld is open daily 11 am onwards.
