Tells the Story good. Not all exhibits interesting.
Plenty time required; min 2 hours. Many Long texts

This small museum tells the story of District 6 in Cape Town. The set up is nice and easy to follow, it is pretty cheap to get in and you get a real history lesson. They could use A/C though on hot days. I was sweating seriously in there. Makes contemplation pretty difficult.

A moving, educational museum, an excellent complement to a tour of Robben Island.
One of the residents of district, Noor Ebrahim, may be on hand to autograph a copy of his book.

This is an excellent venue to learn about the impact of Apartheid on the African people. Allow at least 2 hours. We only had one hour there as part of our organized tour and I would have liked to spend more time reading information and studying the exhibits.

This place has the saddest and some of the most beautiful South African stories, at the same time. Very organized and a lot to see... they also have a nice little book store and a lovely cafe.
