The Heart of Cape Town Museum in the grounds of Groote Schuur hospital honours all those who played a major role in the surgical feat that pushed the boundaries of science into the dawn of a new medical era, an era in which it became possible to transplant the symbol of the essence of life, our human heart.

The drama of the world’s first human heart transplant, led by Professor Chris Barnard, played out within the walls of the Charles Saint Theatre at Groote Schuur Hospital on 3 December 1967.

Join the Friends for this fascinating visit and tour to relive the days when news of Chris Barnard’s first successful human heart transplant was carried out.
