The museum is an amazing and solemn museum dedicated to the struggles of Apartheid. It has many different exhibits and also a Mandela exhibit. It has a lot of memorabilia from the period from weapons to armored personnel carriers and more. The museum takes you on a tour from the start of Johannesburg and it being a gold mining town to the segregation and Apartheid. It ends with the election of Mandela and the struggles he went through during his life. When you first enter the museum you are randomly selected as black or white on your ticket. I highly recommend doing this museum to understand the people of South Africa

This is an experience, an intense informative mental and emotional experience. It is a must in Johannesburg.

Not just a museum but a historical place where an innocent boy died during apartheid. It touched my heart so much. So many lives lost

This is a must-stop for anyone visiting South Africa. It tells the history of this dark period in the country's history and how the citizens fought to move past it. Heartbreaking and inspiring, the stories and history told here are important for all to learn.

It is hard not to be moved by this powerful and compelling museum. A must-visit for everyone. Amazing to see so much progress but also disturbing to be reminded of how much the world still has to do to support equality and human rights.

Informative and artistic, this is place to spend a couple hours wandering about. Very well done. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Jo'Burg.

This is an excellent repository of information about the history of apartheid presented in a very confusing manner. We had to be told several times that we were going the wrong way. And when we went the correct way it wasn't necessarily in an order that made sense.

The design of the Apartheid Museum and the way a visitor is self-guided from depictions and explantations of the sorry history of apartheid makes for a solemn but oddly satisfying experience.

The Apartheid Museum is a must-do attraction in Johannesburg. Spend a few hours wondering the history of South Africa and special Mandela exhibit.
