Bo-Kaap Museum review 1 Users say 2/5 Rate it

Through the years the Bo-Kaap has been known by many names, ranging from Malay Quarter and Slamse Buurt (Islamic neighbourhood) through to Schotcheskloof and Waalendorp. The area, with its multicoloured houses and steep cobbled streets, was developed in the 1760s by Jan de Waal (hence the name Waalendorp); the museum is the only structure built by him that's remained more or less unchanged through the years. It tells the story of the area's Cape Malays, a culturally rich community descended from East African and South-east Asian slaves and responsible for the introduction of Islam to South Africa.

Visited this museum on 24th Nov. Displays only on ground floor. Not many exhibits. There's a first floor display hall but no displays or exhibits. Should be a sign to say renovation underway. A bit disappointing as I was impressed by information available during last visit in 2005.
