Welcome |  Organizers: ICEE, ICOM-SA, S.A. Apartheid Museum


Organizer: S.A. Apartheid Museum

The S.A. Apartheid Museum opened its doors in November 2001. The museum is registered as a Section 21 Company incorporated not for gain. It has an independent board of trustees of which Dr John Kani is the chairman. Also on the museum board are Adv George Bizos, Mr Marcel von Aulock, Mr Vusi Dlamini, Adv Kgomotso Moroka, Mr Phill Mashabane and Mr Christopher Till. The museum is seen as the pre-eminent institution dealing with contemporary South African history. The main focus of the permanent exhibition is the rise and fall of apartheid.

The Apartheid Museum is dedicated to reconciliation and world peace. Its contribution is to create awareness of the dangers of racism and discrimination through an exhibition and education programme that highlights the apartheid history of South Africa, its rise and fall, and the achievement of freedom and a democratically elected government through negotiation and compromise. According to its vision, the museum seeks through its activities to disseminate the message of reconciliation and peace, singularly or in partnership with organisations and institutions worldwide that are engaged in similar objectives pertaining to human rights, freedom and democracy. By using knowledge of the excesses perpetuated by apartheid South Africa, it aims to make the South African public and international community aware of their individual and collective responsibilities in guarding against discrimination.
