Take a historical journey through the SA Jewish Museum

10 February 2016

What better way to explore South Africa’s rich cultural history than hopping off the red bus at the SA Jewish Museum?

The museum is a tribute to one of the great Jewish communities of the apartheid era.

Visitors to the museum (stop 16) are in for a historical and multimedia journey through time as they learn why a Jewish muesum was erected in the Cape, trace and explore Jewish family history, and explore the scaled-down rendition of Lithuania.

Guests can view paintings on display in honour of those who fought tirelessly against apartheid, such as Nelson Mandela and human-rights activist Helen Suzman. The award-winning documentary Nelson Mandela: A Righteous Man is screened in the museum daily.
