The museum serves as a remembrance of the events of the apartheid era as well as the culture and history of the area before the removals.
The ground floor of the District Six Museum is covered by a large street map of District Six, with handwritten notes from former residents indicating where their homes had been. There are also street signs from the old district, displays of the histories and lives of District Six families, and historical explanations of the life of the District and its destruction.
District Six Museum also serves as a memorial to a decimated community, and a meeting place and community center for former residents as well as the people of Cape Town who identify with its history.
District Six Museum tells the story of more than 60 000 residents removed from their homes and who were moved to the desolate townships on the Cape Flats.
The museum receives limited financial supported from Treasury and barely covers its overheads.
District Six Museum needs our assistance to keep these stories and legacies alive.
Join us for a run/ walk 5,10,15 or 21 kms anytime between 30 October and 2 November 2021. Grab some friends and celebrate your health, heritage and home!
