SLAVE LODGE TOUR

SLAVE LODGE TOUR

Join the Friends on a guided tour with Iziko Museums educator Nadjwa Damon to explore the new exhibitions.

As part of Who were the enslaved? Commemorating lives under enslavement at the Cape of Good Hope, Iziko has renamed the spaces in the Iziko Slave Lodge Museum as we seek to answer the questions: Who were the enslaved? What work did they do? How did they manage to survive a new, unwelcoming and often violent environment once they arrived? How were they able to communicate with each other when they came from far-flung regions: South Asia, South East Asia, Madagascar, East Africa and initially West Africa? We will explore the ground floor, with its renamed rooms, to find their stories. These are narratives of the enslaved, free blacks, the formerly enslaved and the Khoi. You will sense their resilience amid hardship. The New Slavery Exhibitions highlights how the exhibition narrative has been rewritten to give greater recognition to the presence of women and children.

FEES INCREASE
UPDATE

Iziko Museums of South Africa will increase entry fees to all Iziko Museums for the first time in a decade, effective 1 April 2023. The new fees schedule was developed after undertaking a benchmarking assessment of local, regional, and national cultural/heritage attractions. The new entrance fees take our communities and visitors into consideration and remains a unique value-for money cultural and edutainment offering in Cape Town.
