    I went through the museum with a guide who was displaced by the District Six devastating program. He personalized our tour and I would highly recommend that experience.

    Some absolutely stunning pieces, lots of interesting contemporary work. A couple of spaces were not open to the public but still lots to see. The building itself is worth a visit alone if you're into concrete

    Such a great experience. A beautiful museum Wel looked after. Lots of fascinating details and a reminder why we must never forget crimes of the past. Helpful, insightful staff.

    After two years closure(due to Covid19 restrictions) I am happy to say that the Heart of Cape Town has reopened.
    I took my home school students for the tour yesterday and it was fantastic.
    This was my third tour with students and the tour guide Cindy was the best. She is an oracle, not a doctor, who is totally invested in the history of Chris Barnard and his team who performed the World's , first ever, heart transplant.
    She is articulate, while using plain speak on the technical aspects while sharing small anecdotes that add humor and breath life, into what could be a sterile tour - excuse my puns.
    Amazing life life exhibitions transport the visitor back to that historic night.
    My students aged 11 and 12 (grade 6) were fascinated throughout the tour. No better way to learn history than through the experience.
    This tour is Cape Town's best educational and tourist attraction. Don't miss it.

    The rollercoaster of emotions one experiences along your journey through the museum is down to the professionalism in the display, layout and information. This is how a museum should be.

    I found it very interesting, there are some really innovative pieces- one wonderful almost photographic quality picture - just made from dice. It’s extraordinary and the story poignant too. Be sure to see it if you go.
    There’s also some very moving personal stories about rape - set to some haunting music. 90 minutes well spent.

    Beautiful coloursed houses, history and very touristy, i would spend a coffee break, picturesm know the history and head out. We had a day and a half in caeptown and we managed to do these 5 spots, Uber is cheap to go to nearby places and the rest we managed to take athe HOP ON - HOP OFF to boulders beach and the cape of good hope which were good enough.

    Beautiful art in a beautiful neighborhood!! Very small but packs a punch with the beautiful art that they have. If you're looking for pieces of history and culture this is the place. The artwork was phenomenal. Also got a chance to see the artist creating more beauty while there.

    I just adore Jennifer!! She supports local artists and curates each show to perfection.
    One of the best art galleries in Cape Town to visit. Also features a fantastic online website to purchase art.
