Talana Museum

Dundee has a unique museum that is situated on the Talana battlefield and housed in the original house and farm buildings of Peter Smith.   It depicts the military history of the area and the agricultural history of the Biggersberg.  A replica of an old mine building houses the Chamber of Mines’ Coal Museum.  Then there is the Consol Glass Museum, the Corrobrick heritage display and a reproduction of a street scene of Dundee in 1912.  A miner’s cottage has been relocated to the museum and depicts the life style of a coal miner in the 1920’s. The Talana Museum covers 8 hectares.
