The District 6 Museum is a museum located in Cape Town dedicated to a group of 60,000 people uprooted from their home during the Apartheid era under South Africa's National Party. The Museum initially began as a two week exhibition displaying the photographs and memorabilia from a community of mixed race people forcefully removed from their homes and the district was demolished in 1966. Much of the land is still barren today.
Your Tour Guide will give you a detailed History of District 6 while guiding you around the sections of the museum which highlight the various aspects of the lives of the community such as their work, their music, living conditions and pastimes..
