The Apartheid Museum

If you are traveling to Johannesburg for business or pleasure, you will want to make sure that you are taking the time to plan your trip as best as possible. This way, you will be able to truly make the most of it and you will not leave feeling as though you have missed out on some of the best sites and places of the area.

Obviously, one of the most important things on your agenda will be to find good accommodation. If you intend visiting several places in and around Johannesburg, then you should ideally try to find accommodation which is quite central to all the places you intend visiting.

One of the places that you will not want to miss out on is the Apartheid Museum, which is always open except for Mondays, Christmas Day and Good Friday. The hours are generally set to 10am to 5pm so there is plenty of time to see everything that you want to see. You will want to try to make sure that you are arriving a little bit earlier than closing since it takes a while to make it all the way through.

There are guided tours that are available but it is wise to make sure that you are booking this kind of tour in advance because the available spots always fill up fast. Of course, there is a small additional per person cost, but it is only an extra R5 per person. The cost for the regular tour of the Museum is R40 for the adults and for the children, students and pensioners it is only R25 per person.

The Apartheid Museum, outside of Johannesburg, was designed in a way to reflect the experience in South Africa and it was to be centered nicely around gardens. There are a total of twenty-two exhibits to check out. A few of the exhibits are outside so if it is raining, you are going to get a little wet.

Interestingly enough, all of the exhibits on display have been created by historians, filmmakers, and curators. As a basic rule of thumb, the average person takes approximately two hours to make their way through the museum before they return to their accommodation in Johannesburg.

There’s a good bookshop and coffee shop right there where you can stop and relax for a while before you head off, and of course this also provides you with an ideal opportunity to decide where about you want to go next.

You can be rest assured that there are plenty of things to do and places to see in and around Johannesburg. The Apartheid Museum is simply one example, and this is why it’s essential for you to make the proper arrangements as far as your accommodation is concerned.
