This is the 2nd oldest building in Cape Town (after the Castle), and was where the slaves were housed in appalling conditions in colonial times. The exhibits give a good insight into the history of slavery in Cape Town, as well as other changing temporary exhibitions.

The Slave lodge is still in its transitional stages but it will give you both a broad understanding of the timeline of Slavery in the Cape, as well as hints of thousands of individual lives that were altered as a result of bondage

Visiting this museum will give you essential history of Cape Town. You're advised that it will be rather sensitve for children, but hopefully you are raising your children to be aware of their need to be part and parcel of transformative justice, and responsible global citizens.

“Very cool for young kids. Especially as you can feed very tame squirrels in the park outside the museum”

Park
“I don't have the words except that we love to walk and and enjoy the beauty mixed with historic buildings. Quote :There is so much to explore in terms of history inside the garden. Near the Adderley Street entrance a statue of Queen Victoria stands overlooking the Slave Lodge, while a statue of Jan Smuts looks on. Just over the road is the St George’s Cathedral, known as the “people’s church”—even during the apartheid era, all races were welcomed. It was also the starting point for the 30,000-strong demonstration led by Archbishop Desmond Tutu in 1989—and where Tutu coined the phrase ‘rainbow people’ to describe the diversity of South Africa’s population. The Garden is also home to the South African Museum and the Cape Town Holocaust Centre here, where you can view exhibits about the atrocities suffered by Jews during World War II. Beyond that, there are dozens of little historical treasures you’d easily miss if you weren’t looking for them. There is the Rutherford Fountain—which still stands on the original spot where it was erected in 1864—and the well pump embedded in an oak tree which dates back to 1842. There’s also the oldest cultivated tree in South Africa—a saffron pear, propped up on huge steel crutches. ”

“If you are a tourist looking for the history and reason for Cape Town, I strongly suggest you begin your CapeTown tour here! This is good insight into the forced removal of residents & demolition of houses under the apartheid government in the 1970's. Some of the tour guides live to tell the stories.”

“A walk along the colourful houses of the Bo Kaap is well worthwhile to experience an important part of the city's history. For more information visit the museum there too. Pop into Atlas Spices for Cape Malay spice and Rose Café for a traditional samoosa or koeksister (if they haven't sold out of them!)”
