I was hesitant to go to this museum but felt like I had to in order to understand the recent history of the place I was visiting. I only knew a little bit about the environment from the news. While there are unsettling parts, the...More
Even for someone who feels he has tried to stay abreast of the news during the last 50 years, the horrors of apartheid only became really clear through a visit to this remarkable museum.
It is extraordinarily well laid out, and guides you through the...More
This is definitely a must when visiting Johannesburg, it presents the complete story behind the Apartheid, the struggle of the people and how it was abolished. However, you can get a more real and vivid experience of South African history in the streets. If that...More
This was a moving experience that made me very sad for the people. I have left much more wiser and have been telling people back home about this history. Thank you for documenting the history - it is important people know what happened.
This museum's format and the way that the information is presented is quite striking. We spent about three hours there and found it very informative. There's a nice coffee shop and also a gift shop (which is primarily books).

It is possible to visit the museum in that timespan. There sometimes a hal hour waiting time in the airport to get hold of your luggage, since Johannesburg is a relatively small airport. A car will take you there in about half an hour, taking the motorway (toll). Your return however will be during peak hours (what day of the week ?). Reportedly, there is a secure luggage storage on the -1 level between the Terminal and the parking area. For more info, you can consult the "Secure Locker or Storage at Johannesburg Airport" in Tripadvisor topics.
