The apartheid nationalist government destroyed District Six in the 1960s. This memorial museum contains maps, photographs and other reminders of this old vibrant neighborhood. Site walks and tours in the Museum with ex-resident storytellers are also...more

So much to read and see. Great if you can have a tour guide who takes you around and explains everything. Many pictures and artifacts. It is great to do this following the Apartheid tour. Try to get Kenfor this tour thru Capetown free walking...More
If you’re not familiar with the history then this museum tells you what happened to one of the largest black areas in Cape Town in 1966 when a whole community was obliterated and the residents displaced to make way for white occupation. Best to make...More
It was our first time to Cape Town, myself, my mother and my daughter, we were walking through the city actually looking for another establishment and happened past the District Six Museum and decided to go in. We had the friendliest welcome from the lady...More
Don't be fooled by the small scale of this museum, there is so much information to take in. I would highly recommend paying a bit more for the guided tour, which makes everything that bit more personal and accessible.
This museum provided the real story of apartheid. It shares the stories and history of district 6. The museum is in an old church. I was grateful I took the time to experience this museum. I found the personal stories very moving and the quilts...More

The museum isn't that large and is all self-explanatory and self-directed. Some people visit the museum as part of a private tour (as we did.) So, sometimes that guide shows the group around the museum, but it isn't necessary. You can get a lot of attending this museum on your own. The displays are quite good.
After the museum, we toured a settlement outside of the city and then went to Robbins Island, which the tour company booked for us but then you go on your own. You are met by a guide and they lead the tour. Don't miss this.)

Sorry went on a private tour so not sure whether it is on a tour bus route. But look at the tour bus maps and theywill tell you, my best guess is that it may be on the red route as that seemed to go through the centre.
