The Union Buildings were designed by Sir Herbert Baker and they are sited in spectacular gardens. Freedom Park on the outskirts of the city has a museum which celebrates the history of Africa. Freedom Park also features a garden of remembrance, commemorating all of those who lost their lives while fighting for a free South Africa. Nearby the Voortrekker Monument celebrates a key moment in the history of white Afrikaners. In the city centre, the Melrose House Museum is where the peace treaty ending the Anglo-Boer war was signed in 1902.
