Apartheid Museum: A struggle for Democracy, Equality, Reconciliation, and Diversity
"To be free is not merely to cast off one's chains but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others." -Nelson Mandela, June 1999 Opened in 2001, The Apartheid Museum is a powerful and extensive museum documenting the rise and fall of apartheid. Constructed on a 16 acre plot of land, the museum's architecture and design are unique. As you enter through the gates, you'll notice a separate entrance for whites and blacks. It's quite an interesting way to start your voyage through the history of apartheid. The back gardens are designed by Patrick Watson and it is complete with a sculpture by William Kentridge. For anyone wanting to understand the what apartheid in South Africa was about, a visit here is a necessity.
