  • Fascinating museum, with incredible displays on the tragic history of the area. Moving story's and very informative, highly recommend a visit.
  • An absolutely amazing experience. Do yourself a favour and book a tour with a previous resident. They speak so powerfully about their experience and give you a colourful picture of this vibrant community that was destroyed by apartheid.
