Robben Island Museum (RIM) offers a 15% discount on all group tickets of three or more for the month of April.
Guests can hop aboard the ferry at the V&A Waterfront and experience a guided tour of the iconic prison.
During the months of lockdown, RIM used the opportunity to upgrade the island, and in particular, expand on the range of exhibits. The upgrades include the visitors’ centre, where wives and mothers of prisoners gathered to see their loved ones, the Sobukwe Complex that housed South Africa’s first political prisoner on the island, Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe, as well as the artillery room.
Visitors can get a sneak preview of some of the artifacts inside the maximum-security prison, guided by a former political prisoner, who speaks not only of the facts as recorded in the history books, but shares first-hand, an anecdotal encounter of life behind the bars of the prison.
Venue: Robben Island Museum, Robben Island, Cape Town
Time: Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, at 11am
Cost: R400 per adult | R210 for children under 18 years | 15% discount on tickets for groups of 3 or more
