The Apartheid Museum Tour

The Apartheid Museum Tour – The Rise and Fall of Apartheid

The Apartheid Museum Tour is quite an emotional roller coaster experience. Explore images and narratives from the Architect of Apartheid, Dr Hendrik Verwoed who believed in the “superiority” of the Afrikaner Nation. Get a better understanding of segregation in the workplace and see a real life example of what a “Dompas” looked like.


The “Dompas,” ( an Afrikaans word meaning “dumb or stupid” pass ) is what the Africans referred to as their pass. At the time of being stopped by the Police, if this Dompas was not in their possession they would be thrown into the “kwela-kwela,” referred to the “iconic” yellow police vans of the time.

Experience other meaningful and insightful exhibitions to name a few like:

Nelson Mandela once said: “To be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains but to live in way that respects and enhances the freedom of others” ( June 1999 ).
