Hg2 : The Hedonist

Apartheid Museum

A thirty-minute drive from Sandton, situated between the Jo’burg CBD and Soweto, this is an incredibly powerful and emotional museum. Housed within the interesting architecture are a collection documents that testify to the atrocities committed against black South Africans during the segregation imposed by the Nationalist Government regime between 1948 and 1994. The museum is full of chilling reminders of this period, including passbooks, cages and the symbolic 121 hangmen’s nooses. The museum attempts to give visitors an insight into every day township life during the 1970s through the use of photography and original video footage.
