If you really want to experience South Africa's past, the oppression and the separation of races that occurred between 1948-1994, this museum has all the history you need. Armed with photographs, videos and text, the story of apartheid is played out along with the struggle for freedom. When you first arrive, you are handed a ticket (white or black) which designates which entrance you should take, so you can experience a small part of history. Although poignant and interesting, there is some glorifying of African Freedom Fighters. Overall, a great museum to visit. Permanent and featured exhibits. Guided Tours available.
