We combine Soweto, Gold Reef City and Apartheid museum in one day to cover the most important Cultural Historical sites. However Items covered depends on the available time we have.
In Gold Reef City you do the surface tour of the museum, and the Underground mine tour including the Gold pour. At Apartheid museum you do a series of 22 individual exhibitions a dramatic emotional journey of racial discrimination.
For anyone wanting to understand and experience what Apartheid South Africa was really like, a visit to Apartheid museum is fundamental.
The museum is a beacon of hope showing the world how South Africa is coming to terms with its oppressive past and working towards a future that all South Africans can call their own.
Nelson Mandela's exhibition is currently on at the Apartheid Museum. Mandela's exhibition examines his undoubted Strengths and Greatness, but does not shy away from his Weaknesses too. Mandela's extra-ordinary life is explored through seven themes: CHARACTER, COMRATE, LEADER, PENSIONER, NEGOTIATOR and STATESMAN.
Narratives are presented through dramatically visual wall display, supported by film displays of original artefacts. A tour to the apartheid museum is a must for any visitor, who wants to understand the history of Apartheid.
