While in Morija, we stopped by the Museum. The staff person was very nice. The room to really visit is inside and to the right, which has details on the history of Lesotho. Very interesting. Quick visit - were there less than an hour.

We served as Peace Corps Volunteers in Morija many years ago and recently visited again. This little museum is a lovely little community gem. Be sure to stay at the Morija Guest House nearby. You'll have a special visit!
