What you can expect

Begin to understand the dark history of apartheid in 20th-century South Africa with a visit to the world's pre-eminent museum on the subject. Learn about the 1948 National Party implementation of racial segregation and the years of abuse before resistance triumphed nearly 50 years later.

As you enter the eye-catching complex – not without controversy in and of itself – keep an open mind as you wander amongst exhibits organised by an interdisciplinary team of historians and curators. View poignant film footage and photography, read from primary sources and study controversial artefacts, providing human faces and voices to years of systematic racial oppression enforced by the white power structure.

Your visit to this museum will provide a necessary basic overview for comprehending the struggle and oppression of non-whites under apartheid. As you conclude your tour, reflect on the shocking triumph of figures such as Nelson Mandela in the face of insurmountable adversity and the international community's role in utilising the collection to work towards global equality.
