The District Six Museum, established in December 1994, works with the memories of the District Six experience and with that of forced removals more generally. Join the Friends of the South African Museum for a guided tour of this fascinating museum.

District Six was named the Sixth Municipal District of Cape Town in 1867. Originally established as a mixed community of freed slaves, merchants, artisans, labourers and immigrants, it was a vibrant centre with close links to the city and the port. By the beginning of the twentieth century, however, the process of removals and marginalisation had begun.

The site's past and present is used as a symbolic lens through which to learn about and understand experiences of so many other communities in South Africa:
