Sight Seen : South African Wonders - Museum Africa

Johannesburg - Museum Africa

This museum is housed in the impressive old Bree St fruit market. The thoughtful curatorship features exhibitions on the Treason Trials of 1956–61, the development of South African music and the history of housing in the city. The satirical ‘Cartoons in Context’ are worth a look, as is the Sophiatown display, which contains a mock-up of a shebeen (unlicensed bar).
