  • Title: About the Museum | Apartheid Museum
    Descriptive info: The Apartheid Museum s Genesis.. The Apartheid Museum opened in 2001 and is acknowledged as the pre-eminent museum in the world dealing with 20th century South Africa, at the heart of which is the apartheid story.. In 1995 the South African government set up a process for the granting of casino licenses, establishing an agency to do this called the Gambling Board.. The bid documents stipulated that bidders should demonstrate how they would attract tourism and thereby grow the economy and stimulate job creation.. A consortium, called Akani Egoli (Gold Reef City), put in a bid that included the commitment to building a museum.. Their bid was successful, the Gold Reef City Casino was built and an adjacent piece of land given for the construction of a museum.. The cost of the construction of what became the Apartheid Museum - approximately 80 million rand - was paid for by Gold Reef City.. The museum is registered as a Section 21 company (incorporated not for gain) with an independent board of trustees, the chairman  ...   architectural consortium, comprising several leading architectural firms, conceptualised the design of the building on a seven-hectare stand.. The museum is a superb example of design, space and landscape offering the international community a unique South African experience.. The exhibits have been assembled and organised by a multi-disciplinary team of curators, film-makers, historians and designers.. They include provocative film footage, photographs, text panels and artefacts illustrating the events and human stories that are part of the epic saga, known as apartheid.. A series of 22 individual exhibition areas takes the visitor through a dramatic emotional journey that tells a story of a state-sanctioned system based on racial discrimination and the struggle of the majority to overthrow this tyranny.. For anyone wanting to understand and experience what apartheid South Africa was really like, a visit to the Apartheid Museum is fundamental.. The museum is a beacon of hope showing the world how South Africa is coming to terms with its oppressive past and working towards a future that all South Africans can call their own..

  • Title: Race Classification | Apartheid Museum
    Descriptive info: Race Classification.. Racial classification was the foundation of all apartheid laws.. It placed individuals in one of four groups: native , coloured , Asian or white.. In order to illustrate the everyday reality, visitors to the museum are arbitrarily classified as either white or non-white.. Once classified, visitors are permitted entry to the museum only through the gate allocated to their race group.. Identity documents were the main tool used to implement this racial divide, and many of these documents are on display in this exhibit..

  • Title: Journeys | Apartheid Museum
    Descriptive info: The discovery of gold in Johannesburg in 1886 attracted migrants from all over Southern Africa and many other parts of the world.. This exhibit illustrates the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of some of those who journeyed to the city of gold in the years following 1886.. Together they made up a diverse and often racially mixed community.. It was this racial mixing that segregation and apartheid were designed to prevent..

  • Title: Segregation | Apartheid Museum
    Descriptive info: In 1910 South Africa was united for the first time into a single nation known as the union of South Africa.. The majority of blacks, along with white women, were denied the vote.. Racial segregation became the official policy throughout the Union and laid the foundation for apartheid.. The two dominant politicians  ...   were the architects of segregation.. The new state was immediately confronted by opposition from several quarters such as the South African Native National Congress (later known as the ANC), the white miner strikes (from 1913 to 1922) and the first Trade Union (the ICU).. Much of this opposition was suppressed by force..

  • Title: The Turn to Violence | Apartheid Museum
    Descriptive info: During 1959 and 1960, violence broke out in several South African cities.. In March 1960 police fired upon a crowd protesting against the pass laws in Sharpeville, killing at least 69 people and injuring many others.. Demonstrations against the killings followed in many parts of the country and led to  ...   national Congress (ANC) and the Pan Africanist Congress (PAC).. Both went underground, and formed armed wings, Umkhonto we Sizwe (ANC) and Poqo (PAC).. By 1964 the greater part of the internal leadership of both groups had been arrested and jailed, most famously in the Rivonia arrests and trial of 1963-1964..
