Iziko South African Museum
Iziko serves as the national museum of South Africa, so you shouldn’t miss it for the world. You can explore everything from fossils to traditional clothing, and some of the artifacts inside its walls happen to be almost 700 million years old.
District Six Museum
60,000 residents of District Six were forced to abandon their homes during Apartheid in the 1960s. This museum stands as a constant reminder of their harrowing journey, and one of the most tragic eras of South African history as a whole.
