Overview

Nowhere can the story of South Africa's turbulent past and its extraordinary transition to democracy be told as it is at Constitution Hill. Constitution Hill is a national heritage site situated in the Johannesburg CBD and is home to the Constitutional Court of South Africa- the highest court in the country on constitutional matters. Once a place of injustice and brutality, where South Africa's leading political activists, including Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi, were detained, the site has been transformed into a place of solidarity and democracy, home to the Women's Gaol museum, Number Four Museum, and Old Fort Museum. Apart from its engaging and gripping exhibitions, Constitution Hill is also open to the public for guided tours and has become an important platform for Heritage, Education, and Tourism related programmes. The vast variety of programmes hosted at Constitution Hill enable us to embrace current issues, celebrate days of national significance, address matters of public interest and create a forum for public debate. With its rich history and character Constitution Hill boasts of ideal platforms to educate and learn about South Africa's story. ConHill, as it is famously known, also offers a variety of multi-purpose venues, suitable for conferencing, performances, a large array of events and for public activities and programmes.

An experience I will never forget to be locked up in total darkness is horrifying. To see the jail where the first woman escaped and sit one of the highest courts is the land is amzing

Very impressive museum displaying the earlier prison & fort in a tangible way. Together with Robben Island in CPT and the Apartheit Museum a true must see to understand ZA's recent past.

The tour was an eye opener on the pre-1994 experiences of particularly non white inmates ans well as prison conditions of the time as well as sub-human treatment in prison. A serious improvement in the quality of food in the Precinct Restaurant.
