Apartheid Museum


After the legalisation of gambling in South Africa post-1994, the ‘Gambling Board’ was established by the government with the purpose of granting licenses to casino’s. As a part of any bid to construct a casino the Gambling Board requires developers to demonstrate how their prospective casino would attract tourism and stimulate the creation of jobs in the area. As a result of this, when the bid for the Gold Reef City Casino was proposed, it came accompanied with the plan to design and built the Apartheid museum- a museum accredited with being the first museum in the world to deal with 20th century South Africa (at the heart of which is the Apartheid story).

The words ‘Democracy’, ‘Equality’, ‘Reconciliation’, ‘Diversity’, ‘Responsibility’, ‘Respect’ and ‘Freedom’ are written on large concrete columns in the forecourt of the museum. This permanent feature titled ‘The Pillars of the Constitution’ is a tribute to South Africa’s current constitution that what drawn up by the country’s first fully democratic parliament between 1994 and 1996.
