//hapo Museum: Freedom Park Memorial

Event information

Situated on a hill overlooking Pretoria, the park comprises a series of sites, linked by a spiral pathway that explores culture, heritage, history, indigenous knowledge and spirituality through African architecture, landscaping and sculpture.

The park’s //hapo Museum relays an interactive story of Africa, starting millions of years ago with African legends, then winding its way through history to include the eras of colonization, industrialization, nationalism and finally democracy. Starting with the story of creation, //hapo unravels the complex tale of Africa across time and space.

Visitors can opt for a self-guided tour, or participate in a scheduled guided tour. Freedom Park is a cultural institution housing a museum and a memorial dedicated to chronicling and honouring South Africa’s heroes. It was established in terms of the National Heritage Resources Act, and is a product of the government's response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

Translated as the word ‘dream’ in Khoi, the //hapo centre tells the story of Africa, and South Africa specifically, in seven parts. Each is a distinct element in the evolution of the continent, and the narrative is conveyed using interactive displays, vivid audio-visual presentations, performances and storytelling.
