THis is an exceptional museum--small in size, but more inspirational and educational than many museums ten times its size. The history of apratheid in SOuth Africa is explained in a thoughtful way, so that the experience is one you will never forget.

Sad as it is - this ties in all the history of SA. You would never know this happened many years ago and it's worth visiting...

One of the best parts of our tour of Cape Town, this down-to-earth museum tells the story of this unique community, erased now and scattered. An important part of the history of this city and this land. We have told all of our friends about this place. Lots of personal stories here and artifacts of a time past.

Small but extremely informative museum with excellent recorded details and photographs of what happened during this terrible time. In a later Rovos Rail train trip at a border station we saw a sign 'TOILETS 3rd and 4th class only,' Many of us living in Europe forget what happened in South Africa. Definely worth a visit
