Cape Town's slavery past almost comes to life at the Slave Lodge

When spending a day in the inner city of Cape Town, a visit to the the Slave Lodge Museum on the lower part of Company Gardens is a must.

Completed in 1679, the Iziko Slave Lodge is one of the oldest buildings in Cape Town. It was constructed originally to house the slaves of the VOC (Dutch East India Company) but was substantially modified when it was converted to Government offices in 1811.



The many uses of the building over three centuries - Slave Lodge, Government Offices Building, Old Supreme Court, and SA Cultural History Museum - attest to its long and complex history.

Location:
Iziko Slave Lodge Cape Town
Corner of Adderley and Wale Streets
+27 (0) 21 4608242
Open: Mon - Fri: 10h00 - 16h30
Sat: 09h00 -13h00
Closed: Good Friday & Christmas Day
