School visits : What you need to know


If you are considering a visit to the ApartheidMuseum, please be aware of the following:

Admission:   R40 per learner    R45 per teacher

  • Bookings need to be confirmed a week beforehand. There is no guarantee that the school can be accommodated if the tour is not confirmed.
  • The museum must be notified if the school is unable to attend at least a week beforehand.
  • If you have made a booking, the museum will provide a guided tour for your school.
  • If you arrive late, your school may forfeit your guided tour and the teachers may have to take learners around the museum themselves.
  • The museum does not admit school groups of children younger than Grade 6 because of the sensitive nature of the material on display.
  • The museum  opens at 9 am, and school tours take a minimum of two hours. Children will not benefit from the experience if the tour is cut short.
  • Teachers are expected to accompany the children with the guide on the tour, and are responsible for the behaviour of the children during the tour.
  • Teachers are encouraged to visit the museum before bringing their learners. We will not charge for this visit for a maximum of two teachers per school visit.
  • Payment by cheque should be made out to the S.A. Apartheid Museum and            handed over on arrival at the ticket office. Payment can also be made in cash on arrival.
  • Tours are designed for different age groups. Different age groups will explore different sections of the museum.
  • Grades 6 – 9 children will each be given a booklet to work with in the museum, designed for their grade level. Teachers can also use these booklets in follow-up lessons when they return to school.
  • Every learner must bring a pen to complete some written activities in the museum.
  • No cameras are allowed in the museum.
  • No food is allowed in the museum. If children require a snack break during the tour, this can be negotiated with the guide.
  • Alcohol is not permitted in the museum. Teachers or children who are inebriated will not be allowed access to the museum. 

      We look forward to your visit.
