Apartheid Museum

Visitor information

Important Annoucement

Please note that the Apartheid Museum will be closed temporarily to the public from end of business on Friday 20 March 2020. We hope to re-open again after the Easter weekend i.e. 14 April 2020, subject to the feasibility thereof.

We have taken this measure in order to protect our staff and the public and to curb the spread of the virus.

Please follow us on social media (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram) where we will continue to provide the public with snapshots of the museum and South African apartheid history.
