District Six Museum

POI: -33.927723, 18.423673
District Six Museum is a museum in the former inner-city residential area, District Six, in Cape Town, South Africa. District Six Foundation was founded in 1989 and the museum in 1994, as a memorial to the forced movement of 60,000 inhabitants of various races in District Six during Apartheid in South Africa in the 1970s. The floor of the museum is covered with a big map of the district with hand written notes of former inhabitants, which indicate where their houses were located. One former resident is jazz musician, Abdullah Ibrahim, better known under the name, Dollard Brand. Other pieces in the museum are old traffic signs, exhibits of moments in history and lives of families from the area, historical declarations, and the demolition. Furthermore, the museum offers programs for current inhabitants to develop the district. The museum is dedicated to the construction of houses, environmental planning, and the organization of activities in the fields of music, literature, and art, with the active involvement of the public. The museum's goal is to join people into a community where there is respect for dignity, identity and the co-existence of different races. In 2003, the museum was honored with a Prince Claus Award from the Netherlands.
