2011-05-16 00:00

THE Natal Museum has been renamed the KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) Museum, the head of the museum council, Professor Dennis Brothers, announced last week.

The public’s suggestions were reviewed by a panel of experts in the fields of history, onomastics (the study of proper names) and museology, and recommendations for a new name were made. “The panel recommended the name KwaZulu-Natal Museum because it was seen as a reflection of the expanding role of the museum and its broad contributions to nation building, social cohesion and national identity. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
