Explore the rise and fall of the apartheid era at the Apartheid Museum (Opened from Wednesday - Sunday), in Johannesburg. Explore an emotional 3-4 hours journey with a guide, and hear the sad story of a state-sanctioned system based on racial discrimination and the struggle of the majority to overthrow this enemy. After pickup from your hotel in Johannesburg, make your way with your guide to the Apartheid Museum. On entering the museum, discover a series of individual exhibition areas assembled and organized by a multi-disciplinary team of curators, filmmakers, historians, and designers. Learn about the era of apartheid, implemented in 1948 by the white National Party government, which turned 20 million people into second class citizens, damning them to a life of humiliation, and abuse. See provocative film footage, photographs, and artifacts illustrating the events and human stories of apartheid. The journey ends with the election of Nelson Mandela, the prisoner who became president, in 1994. The liberation of the nation and people of South Africa from apartheid is the climax of a tale of resistance, courage, and fortitude. After your museum visit, the tour concludes with a Johannesburg orientation, passing by the Maboneng Precinct, the multimillion-rand Nelson Mandel bridge and finally being dropped off at your hotel.
