District Six Museum
Distance from Houghton View Guest House: 7,8 KM
The District Six Museum in Cape Town revives the history of a vibrant community that was forcibly removed to the city’s periphery during apartheid.
In 1966 the National Party government declared District Six a “white group area” and moved thousands of residents (mostly coloured and black people) to the Cape Flats, where they had few facilities or means of making a living. All buildings except religious ones were demolished.
Nowadays, former residents and their descendants are rebuilding their memories and cultural heritage once again in this area.
