Johannesburg has definitely glo’d up! Transforming from a small gold mining settlement to South Africa’s biggest city, the district has been rising to fame for its significance during South Africa’s apartheid movement. Good ol’ Jo’burg has played home to all the greats, even anti-apartheid activists and Nobel Prize winners: Desmond Tutu & Nelson Mandela. You just gotta go, Jo!
Your students will jump straight into the shocking recent history of South Africa at the Apartheid Museum. This museum offers an insight into the rise and fall of segregation and inequality in South Africa, all demonstrated through emotive photos, videos, personal artefacts and moving anecdotes.
It’s not a trip to Jo’burg without experiencing Constitution Hill, this museum is made up of former prisons: Old Fort Prison, Number Four Jail, Women’s Jail and the Awaiting Trail Block. Once home to all the big names: Mahatma Gandhi, Fatima Meer and Winnie and even Nelson Mandela.
