Apartheid Museum

Situated at the Gold Reef City campus, The Apartheid Museum, which opened in 2001, illustrates what life was like for South Africans under the apartheid system through dramatic photographs, videos, press clips, personal artefacts and moving anecdotes. At the entrance to the museum are seven pillars, one for each of the seven values on which the South African constitution is based.

The museum has permanent and temporary exhibits put together by a team of designers, historians, curators and film-makers. Some of the permanent exhibitions depict race classifications and the havoc that this law wreaked on families. An exhibit titled Total Onslaught will take you through the 1980s to the early ’90s where civic and student unrest in the country reached its peak. The exhibits titled Mandela’s Release and The Miracle and Beyond are about late former president Nelson Mandela’s release after 27 years in prison, followed by the historic 1994 general elections.

The veld garden as well as the coffee and museum shops offer visitors a chance to wind down after the tour. The garden is particularly important because it gives visitors a chance to reflect on South Africa’s past and take in the beauty of the current landscape.
