The Apartheid Museum is the story of the triumph of the human spirit over adversity.
The Museum, the first of its kind, illustrates the rise and fall of apartheid. It continues right up to Nelson Mandela’s release from prison in 1990 and the first democratic elections in 1994. The museum has been assembled by a multi-disciplinary team of curators, filmmakers, historians and designers. The exhibits range from film footage, photographs, text and artifacts. Each illustrates the events and human stories that are part of the epic saga, known as Apartheid. A visit to the Apartheid Museum is essential for anyone wanting to understand and experience what South Africa was really like during that time.
We like to combine an Apartheid museum tour with nearby Soweto. Ideally such a tour takes about 6 hours. However it can be done in half a day if you are short of time. You need to allow at least two hours for the Apartheid museum.
Please note that we do not book this tour on a standalone basis, but you can book it online on the supplier’s website if you follow this link: https://www.apartheidmuseum.org/visiting-us
