The District Six Museum foundation launched in 1994, to keep alive the memories of the displaced District Six inhabitants. It is a vehicle for social justice, and where understanding of the past is facilitated by collections, exhibitions and education. Established as a meeting place for ex-residents, the museum has become a tourist attraction, where one can either take a self-guided tour down a street of District Six, or be guided in such a tour by an ex-resident.
“It’s not just about food, though. This place has a spirit, a community-vibe, a warmth.” Read Briony Chisolm’s review of The District Six Museum Cafe
The current permanent exhibition is called Digging Deeper, and is a rich experience giving insights into elements including the social, cultural, economic and political make up of District Six.
