Description

A symbol of our freedom and unconventional in terms of museum design, the Red Location Museum is definitely worth a visit.

Red Location is one of the oldest townships of Nelson Mandela Bay, named for the corrugated iron barrack buildings which have rusted to a deep red. Many famous political and cultural leaders lived in Red Location and a number of significant ‘struggle’ events occurred during Apartheid.

Museum visitors are treated as active participants rather than consumers. The past is represented as a set of memories, disconnected yet bound together by themes using the concept of the Memory Box. This was inspired by the boxes that migrant labourers used for storing their precious possessions when separated from their families.

Red Location also draws together the strands of struggle that commemorate the efforts by different groups to free themselves.

The museum complex includes an art gallery, market, a creative arts centre, library, adult literacy centre and a conference venue.
