Built 100 years ago, Old PC’s office building was referred to as ‘Hatches, Matches and Dispatches’ because of the births, marriages and deaths that were recorded there. Today, the building is a National Monument and serves as a museum holding temporary art exhibitions. The gallery is currently showcasing the Murumbi African Heritage Collection Exhibition.
