Bo-Kaap Museum


No. 71 Wale street in Cape Town is today known as the Bo-Kaap Museum. The former house was constructed in 1763 by Jan De Waal who also built a number of small houses nearby. This style of house, named “huurhuisies”, was the first constructed housing style in the Bo-Kaap area. A notable feature of this building and those alike are the small glass window panes. During the 1700’s, glass (transported by ship at the time) was imported in very small sizes to reduce the chance of damage during the long sea journeys, forcing architects to adopt to these restrictions in their building designs. The area of the Bo-Kaap was created centuries back by freed slaves, many of whom, hailed from South East Asia and practised the Islamic faith. Inside the Bo-Kaap museum an exhibit showcases this part of South Africa’s Islamic heritage.
