Apartheid Museum

A Place of Healing

A journey through the Apartheid Museum takes you into the heart of the darkness of evil, and out again into the light.

It is an emotional journey designed to encourage visitors to empower themselves with knowledge to prevent such horrors from happening again. The museum gardens offer visitors a space for reflection. The landscape is South African, and conveys the harsh beauty of our country.
