Very interesting! It can entertain you even more than 2 hours. Very cheap price

Interesting and informative. Liked the photo exhibit done by the people living with hiv. Highly recommended.

Very well presented, although signposting could be better. I feel an eerie connection to this place as some of my ancestors were born here.

If you are downtown, this museum is worth a short visit. Stick to the first floor exhibit on slavery. It was interesting to learn names that were given to slaves. Being in the space where they were detailed after arrival adds resonance to the displays. Upstairs displays are fairly random collections and can be skipped.

Very inspiring and interesting place. I had no idea that it existed when I arrive to the city, but now I would recommend it as a must.

It was a slightly disapointing visit. Some of the halls were showing the gistory and stories of slave and slave trade (not enough in my opinion). Other halls were about AIDS and as much as it is important, it wasn't what we came for... Summary - it was moderately interesting... If you have extra time, go see it. Do not put it in your high priority list...

A heartbreaking experience but very necessary. Educational. We need more places like this that show the suffering of our people. I am sad we arrived late, under an hour before closing but I will be back. It needs to be updated and add Libyan slavery.

The history contained in this building is phenomenal and extremely interesting, especially for those who are concerned with understanding the present/past dilemma of this beautiful country, that is South Africa.

The ground floor level is cool and informative, but the exhibits upstairs are straight up strange.

Free on youth day. Very informative. Sad reality of the past

This place reminds us how low and unlawful humans can be towards their fellows, just because of greed and selfish interests. They then decided to create a belief based from the judgement of differences in color of the skin and the lifestyle, that they were above others, that the others were made to be servants and slaves for their successes. Sadly, no one has learnt much from the past. History seems to repeat itself in various aspects.

This is an important museum, but sanitises a violent history, and places colonial objects with no critique or engagement.

It is a very interesting museum that talk about a subject that not many people like to see or know about !! It has many points about history and for those that don't know the kinds of slaves at the actual time...
