The Apartheid Museum, situated in Johannesburg, is an essential visit for anyone interested in South Africa’s turbulent past. The museum documents the rise and fall of apartheid through a series of 22 individual exhibition areas that have been assembled by a multi-disciplinary team of curators, film-makers, historians, and designers. They include provocative film footage, photographs, text panels, and artefacts illustrating the events and human stories of the apartheid saga.
The Apartheid Museum is acknowledged as the most distinguished museum in the world dealing with 20th century South Africa. It is a beacon of hope that shows the world how South Africa is coming to terms with its oppressive past and working towards a future that all South Africans can call their own.
Plan for at least a 2-hour visit. Please note that, due to the graphic nature of the Museum’s content, it is not deemed suitable for children under the age of 11.
