The institutionalized race segregation known as apartheid had a profoundly negative impact on the lives of many South Africans. In 1994, it finally ended as a result of a peaceful general election and the rise to power of Nelson Mandela. By 2001, the Apartheid Museum opened show the rise and fall of this oppressive system.
Displays and installations let visitors experience what it was like to live during the segregation. The entrance itself divides people into whites and non-whites. The history of the struggle for black rights is also well-documented.
The exhibits provide an emotional journey of struggle and triumph. People of all races are welcome.Places nearby:
