Apartheid Museum, Johannesburg Reviews
5 star. Very informative, very touching. Talks a lot about South African history. We were short on time so we couldn’t finish all of it but I recommend keeping at least 2.5 hrs aside to experience this truly amazing place. Gives a lot of perspective on how lucky we are compared to the olden days.
Excellent and well designed facility! well worth a visit if you have at least two to three hours to spare to learn more about the past of this beautiful country. I would however not recommend that you take young children as there is a lot of text and not much interactivity. Our eldest (15yrs old) just about managed to keep it together. The youngest (9yrs old) lost interest before we got to the main exhibition space.
Very well presented history from the beginnings of racial segregation in South Africa up to the present day. Identifying the political turning points from the first white settlements onwards. Moving and informative, few museums can tell history as vividly as this. Excellent.
Very informative and intense. Need a few hours to thoroughly enjoy but a bit boring for kids so better to go without.
Looking to learn and understand South African past during apartheid. The Apartheid Museum is well designed, historical and well researched. Everyone should take the time to experience it however you will need to spare about 2 to 3 hours to go through the whole museum.
