  • Really interesting museum with lots of information and some very personalised exhibits. Loved the different recipes hanging on the walls. It would have been nice to have some audios to go along with the exhibits as there was a lot of reading!
  • 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.
