Cultural Activities for Teenagers: Museums



Then there are naturally all the other Top Cape Town attractions which do not only attract children or teenagers. There are numerous museums in Cape Town where you can learn about the country’s history.


The District Six Museum for example shows how the apartheid regime affected the life of the cloloured and black people in Cape Town. Then there is also the Cultural History Museum at the old Slave Lodge in the Company Gardens which is a must see for anybody interested in learning more about Cape Town’s early history. There is also the Cape Town castle, the planetarium, the Chavonnes museum and so many more interesting museums. Read on here.

And not to forget to visit Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 27 years. 


Another place we can highly recommend is the San Cultural Heritage Centre, where children and teenagers can learn about the Bushmen. Take a tour with a descendant of the San people at  !Khwa ttu, near Yzerfontein, 50 min north of Cape Town CBD. Contact
