The museum is open on public holidays however on Christmas, boxing day and New years day we are closed.

The Museum is the first cultural space in Soweto.

It is a first of its kind, a hidden gem. The museum was a pilot project for tourists and locals from 2018 and A luta continua.

It is truly the pride of Soweto.


The museum is situated in the middle of the houses, in Rockville, just 200 meters from Regina Mundi. Regina Mundi played a pivotal role in the struggle against apartheid in the second half of the 20th century. Since political meetings in most public places were banned, the church became the main place where Soweto people could meet and discuss. Even funerals often ended up as political meetings. For this reason, Regina Mundi earned the reputation of being one of the main centres of anti-apartheid activism in the province of Gauteng. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission hearings were held in the church from 1995 to 1998, presided over by Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
