The Sixth District Museum is a must-visit attraction in Cape Town. Although the museum is smaller than expected, understanding this period of history can be said to be understanding the past of Cape Town. You can participate in a guided tour, and there is also a group that can take you away from the sixth district museum and go to the sixth district to see the current situation there. You can finish the tour in about 30 minutes, but you must buy an exploration map of the sixth district at the museum and take a look at this neighborhood even if you do not participate in the guided tour of the sixth district.
The visit was brief but impactful. You see but a moment of the lives of people displaced, abused, discounted and ignored. This is remembrance.
This is my favourite museum in Cape Town! It has lovely, personal stories and displays.Please stop by if you have a spare hour or 2.
Was a great time. Markus was 2 I believe and they had a kindergarden in there and Markus mixed with the kids... so funny!
The District Six Museum was both informative and moving. It gives an account of how this district was cleared of all non-white residents as part of apartheid. Having grown up in the UK and only really remembering the 90s onwards, I still find this level of institutionalised racism hard to grasp, but I feel the museum helped me to understand the effects of apartheid a little more. It is definitely a place that should be visited in Cape Town.
