I visited this museum again with guests from Australia and once again the visit was excellent with the museum giving a good history background of 16 June 1976 when children protested against the use of Afrikaans in their schools. The response from my guests were very positive and the actual photo's and video clippings takes them back to that era. The layout of the museum is in sequence and people visiting this museum learn a lot about South African history. The museum also gives an account from both sides, the children and the police of what happened on that day.
The memorial outside the museum links the museum to various spots in the streets of Soweto to actually where young Hector was killed. The museum is not only a indoor visit, but also outside and you end up walking in the streets of Soweto. Henry Zeiler, South African Tourist Guide GP1038.
