Apartheid Museum, Johannesburg Reviews - Write a Review
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.
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.
Worth the visit to delve into the history of this country. You'll need around 1.5 - 2 hours to go through the whole place (even longer if you want to really read 70% of the items). There are no cameras allowed in some sections of the museum. The gift shop when I went was about 70% stocked so you won't find everything you're after The Cafe was busy and some people were waiting for their food for around 20 - 30 minutes. Being located next to an amusement park can be somewhat distracting.
Interesting museum. Well put together, but even the short version of the exhibit is very long in terms of the amount of literature one has to read. It's a bit too much to take it all in. It took us around 2 and a half hours to get through it and we could have spent double the time as we skipped some texts and videos. The 20min video towards the end was good. Couldn't see the temporary exhibition. Can't take photos, even without a flash.
Exhibits were well done and informative. My only criticism would be the amount of text that is presented - far too much to absorb. Worth a visit if you don't know much about South African history.
