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
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.
One of the best museums I've ever visited. Definitely takes you back to those gruesome times. While providing a balanced and informative view of the how, when and why. Definitely plan at least four hours for it though!
You might get emotional here. It’s a sad part of history that most would want to forget. But knowing this piece of history will ensure that we don’t go back to treating each other like “those” days. A must visit. There’s a restaurant on site. Choose a chicken burger from their menu, it was really delicious.
It’s one of the most amazing and strong memory museums that I’ve ever visited. It gives you a clear idea of the context of apartheid plus an overall recent history of South Africa. For anyone interested in memory institutions this is a must see venue in Johannesburg. In my personal opinion and experience you need at least 3 to 4 hours to visit the permanent exhibition.
Layout needs some improvement a bit repetitive. Too many articles to read for the average person to keep their attention. Preferred the videos. Very informative. No pictures are allowed to be taken.
