Robben Island, Cape Town: 42 reviews and 66 photos
This is a museum full to the brim of history, tradition and culture! It speaks a grand story, one of terror, reconciliation and peace.
The museum has a vast collection of art works, photographs, artefacts and historical data.
Very thorough and telling.
The Archives depict the political struggle during Apartheid, and are vast, comprising more than 100,000 photographs, 10,000 film and video recordings, 5,000 artefacts, 2,000 oral history tapes, 2,000 posters, more than 300 collections of historical documents and an extensive art collection, including the UN-sponsored International Artists Against Apartheid Exhibition and 10,000 political cartoons.
Lots to take in and absorb!
