Apartheid Museum is acknowledged as a Pre-eminent Museum in the World dealing with the Apartheid story in South Africa. It illustrates the Apartheid history and Post- Apartheid era of South Africa.
An Architectural consortium, comprising several leading Architectural firms, conceptualised the design of the building on a 7 hectare stand. The museum is a superb example of design, space and landscape offering the International community a unique South African experience. The exhibits have been assembled and organised by a multi- disciplinary team of Curators, Film-makers, historians and designers. They include film footages, Photographs, Text panels and Artefacts. The museum is a beacon of hope showing 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.

 

Mandela’s exhibition

Nelson Mandela's exhibition is currently on at the Apartheid Museum. Mandela's exhibition examines his undoubted Strengths and Greatness, but does not shy away from his Weaknesses too. Mandela's extra-ordinary life is explored through seven themes: CHARACTER, COMRATE, LEADER, PENSIONER, NEGOTIATOR and STATESMAN. Narratives are presented through dramatically visual wall display, supported by film displays of original artefacts. A tour to the apartheid museum is a must for any visitor, who wants to understand the history of Apartheid.
