The Apartheid Museum is perhaps the most impressive museum in South Africa. It was opened in 2001 and takes the visitor through 22 individual exhibitions to the beginning and the end of Apartheid. The exhibitions tell the story of a system set up by the State that was based on race discrimination and the struggle that many have fought to put an end to this. For anyone who wants to understand, a visit to this museum is really a must!

Your guide will guide you through the Apartheid Museum. This museum is perhaps the most interesting and moving exhibition in the whole of South Africa. Here you get a multimedia tour through the terrible history of Apartheid.
It starts with separate entrances for whites and non-whites. You follow a different route through the museum for each race and make a journey through time. From the beginning of Apartheid to the fall of 1994; the year in which Nelson Mandela celebrated victory.
The museum is built like a prison, including electric fence, bars and unplastered walls. Inspirational texts by Mandela have been painted on the walls. You get a realistic picture of the tough life as a black South African during Apartheid.
Separate paths, separate benches and separate toilets. Film images show the violence and demonstrations against black South Africa. A shiver will run down your back when you enter the room where there are 131 slings. A memory of all executed political prisoners.
