Museum
“Set aside a few hours for this compulsory site chronicling Apartheid. The site is imbued with historical traumas but is also a beacon for progress and subversion. This old prison now houses the highest court in South Africa. There is a permanent art exhibition featuring all of South Africa's esteemed artists. A tour of the prisons that held Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi and Winnie Mandela is comparable to Robin Island in Cape Town. ”
