“Great potential - needs a little work”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

There is an amazing story here to be told. Problem is, the set up to the museum doesn't clearly explain to those not in the know about the forced relocation of this mixed race neighborhood by the South African government. Lots of interesting photographs of the old neighborhood, but none annotated or laid out thoughtfully enough to make sense. A real pity. Please rethink the layout of your museum, so it has the impact of the District 6 museum in Cape Town.
