“Situated in the heart of Johannesburg, Constitution Hill is a living museum that tells the story of South Africa’s transition from colonialism and apartheid to democracy, with all the pain, pathos and catharsis that such a journey entails. The site served as a prison and briefly as a military fort for 100 years, incarcerating men, women and even children within its walls.
