COVID-19

25 March 2020

The Nelson Mandela Capture Site is closed for the period of the 21 day national lockdown. 

 

We would like to wish all South Africans a safe period of isolation and urge all citizens to follow the measures implemented by the government. 

 

The Apartheid Museum, which operates the Nelson Mandela Capture Site, is a non-profit Public Benefit Organisation and is dependent on entrance fees to sustain and protect jobs in our local community. We understand that the closure of the Nelson Mandela Capture Site will have detrimental effects on our ability to do so as it will for many other businesses in our country. 

 

We would like to encourage all South Africans to #supportlocal businesses and your donations will be essential to our survival during this difficult time. If you would like to make a donation please contact us using the information below.

 

We understand that South Africa is #strongertogether and believe it is important to play our part in order to #flattenthecurve.

The Apartheid Museum which operates the Nelson Mandela Capture Site has been closely following the updates regarding the COVID-19 virus.  

 

After careful reflection, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close both the Apartheid Museum and the Visitor Centre at the Capture Site until further notice.

This decision has been made in the interests of protecting the health of the public and our staff, and in an effort to assist in combating the spread of this virus.

 

Visitors are welcome and encouraged to continue to visit the Capture Site and view the renowned sculpture, which has attracted attention from around the world .

 

We have implemented the precautions advised by health authorities to ensure the safety and health of all our staff, visitors and volunteers. We advocate being out in wide open spaces and interacting with other people at a safe distance.
