The Apartheid Museum is the story of the triumph of the human spirit over adversity and oppression.  The path through the museum leads you on a journey beginning with segregation, the cornerstone of apartheid.  It takes you back through the history of the myriad cultures converging during the pre-apartheid era, through the years of race classification, the 50 acts of apartheid, detentions as well as the rise of black consciousness and the armed struggle.  Finally, witness the release of Nelson Mandela after 27 years of imprisonment, which led to the negotiations for peace.

This museum is a powerful landmark and a unique South African experience.

Apartheid is exactly where it belongs – in a Museum!

A museum experience which should not be missed. The contemporary history of South Africa with its main focus being the apartheid story, is displayed in the museum. The story is told through artifacts, experiential spaces, big blown up photographs, television monitors, big screen movies and recreated spaces. A minimum of two and half hour visit is recommended. A must see destination in South Africa.
