The first of its kind, the Apartheid Museum opened in 2001 and documents the rise and fall of apartheid while telling the story of the nation’s resistance and courage. The museum is recognised as the foremost museum about 20th Century South Africa while the museum buildings are a wonderful example of design, space and landscape.
The exhibits have been assembled and organised by a multi-disciplinary team of curators, film-makers, historians and designers and include provocative film footage, photographs, text panels and artefacts to illustrating the events and human stories from this brutal period of South African history.
After meeting your guide at your hotel, you will depart for the Apartheid Museum. Here you will embark on a self-guided tour of the museum, together with your guide who is on hand to assist you with further insight and information relating to the exhibits. On this immersive experience, you will be able to make the most of your time, exploring the museum at your own pace and with the flexibility to pick and choose from the extensive collection of exhibits.
The museum is usually explored in about two hours and you will return to your hotel during the late afternoon.
