Apartheid Museum - Review
The Apartheid Museum is an assortment of separate museum buildings which illustrate mutual exclusion in their purpose and exhibition. This Museum was primarily built in honour of the struggle against apartheid, besides depicting the cultural and developmental history of South Africa during the 20th century. The Museum facilitates the visitors with complete guided tour and video and audio assistance and directions, along with exhibitions about the historical revolution against apartheid. The maintenance of the museum is done by a non profit organization of trustees. Thus the museum is preserved and run by the numerous provincial donations and sponsorships of the contributors functioning in Johannesburg.

Apartheid Museum, Johannesburg Reviews
Outstanding museum for those who are interested in South African history in general and the apartheid era in particular. A tremendous amount of excellent video content really brought it all to life. Obviously quite sobering but we did not find it at all depressing. Very easy to get to for tourists - we caught the Big Red Bus and the museum was one of the stops. Probably my only minor issue was that the cafe was expensive by South African standards and in my view not up to the quality of the rest of the museum.
This museum is great. It helps preserve the memory of past injustices in SA to help future generations avoid that path. It has a historical record dating as far as the 1700. There are many artifacts to put the apartheid into perspective plus videos and photos. Also has restaurant and an ATM
Wow! One of the BEST museums I've been to. There's only so much of a people's story that can be fitted on a wall. Despite the limitations, this museum puts in a tremendous, unapologetic attempt and the stories are both breathtaking and heart wrenching. It's not an easy story, but it is told with sincerity. The photography on display is amazing!!! A note that you cannot take pictures once you are inside the museum. There's lots to see and a lot of reading if you would like to find out more beyond what the very expressive photography displays. I wished for more time and no kids, to savor the amazing history.
For a view of the horrors of the past and to remind ourselves of what can go wrong when one group of people feel superior to the rest of mankind. The past should never repeat itself however the people we chose to put in power always seem to create and implement their own agenda greatly enriching some few well connect people.
A must see for visitors from out of town to learn some of the history of the area. We took our 2 children (ages 14 and 11) and they both found it emotional. If you book a hop-on hop-off bus including the Soweto tour, this museum ties all the places you visit together. We found the museum took about 2+hours.
