Apartheid Museum tours celebrate the victory of the human spirit

South Africa is a country with a rich history. Some of it is tainted with immense sadness, but at the same time this has also paved the way for stories filled with hope and celebrated with victory. Apartheid left a huge scar in the lives of many people, and it is not a part of our history that we are necessarily proud of. On the other hand, it has spurred people on to become heroes, to fulfil their destiny and to stand up for what is right. It showed the rest of the world that we are not a nation that accepts defeat, but that we stand up and fight for a better life. We are proud to be South Africans and it is this pride and the struggle that led to it that we pay homage to in recognition of the die hard heroes who made it possible. Apartheid Museum tours will take you on a journey through this memorial, it will show you the heartache, but it will also leave you with a sense of unfathomable hope..

Apartheid Museum is acknowledged as the pre-eminent museum in the world dealing with 20th century South Africa, and the Apartheid Struggle. Apartheid Museum tours are, however, not the only place to learn more about this incredible piece of history. A visit to Soweto will take you to what is known as the birthplace of the apartheid struggle. Here you will be able to see the Nelson Mandela National Museum, established in the former house of Nelson Mandela. Another important museum is the Hector Pieterson Museum, two blocks away from where Hector Pieterson was shot and killed. The museum is named in his honour and became one of the first museums in Soweto when it opened in on 16 June 2002.
