25 March 2020 - Letter from the Director, Mr Chris Till

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. 


Please continue to follow our social media sites for informative content and updates.
