What to Bring

Once a vibrant community, District Six was torn apart when the apartheid government declared it a 'white only' zone. Over 60,000 people were ripped away from their homes, communities, and livelihoods and relocated to the wind blown flat lands of Cape Flat, the 'dumping ground of the apartheid.'

The museum itself is housed in an old church (spared from the destruction of District 6) and serves not just as a place for reflection but as an institution serving the community that was wrenched from their homes telling the true stories of their history.
