Description

First Gangster Museum in Africa located Khayelitsha. Have you heard? Let’s meet here and give you depth history/current about Khayelitsha. Let the 18 Gangster Museum team host you and get to unpack the gang history and consequences and their learnings. Have you seen gangs transforming and contributing positively in shaping their society? Now it’s time!

Are you ready? The walk begins, take pictures, engage with community. Learn how we greet in Xhosa “Molweni” and chat to the locals. Join & Experience the 2nd Biggest township in South Africa.

18 Gangster Museum is the first of its kind in Africa. This innovative living museum aims to help South African youth to better understand the treacherous path that too many in their communities take into gangsterism and, ultimately, prison. More importantly, 18 Gangster Museum seeks to offer a positive alternative.

Incorporating immersive text and imagery and a replica prison cell, 18 Gangster Museum’s installations are curated by ex-offenders who share their real-life experiences of gangsterism and prison and how they turned their lives around.

Visit 18 Gangster Museum today, and be a part of the movement to demystify the scourge of gangsterism in our communities. 18 Gangster Museum offers various fully guided tours with qualified tour guides and our ex-offender curators. Gain deep insight into the Cape’s gang culture, and get beneath the surface of Khayelitsha, Cape Town’s biggest township.

Through this tour we will unpack the history of our township and have a 360 view of Khayelitsha from Lookout Hill. We will walk through the community, maybe a quick coffee at Sikis coffee shop, a visit at the local “Green” bakery or a stroll through the Khayelitsha Mall & Wall of Remembrance.

We will take a local taxi to 18 Gangster Museum and spend the session with reformed ex-prisoners, ans meet the kids at the local Kindergarten / Chreche. We will end the day with a nice South African “braai” (barbecue) together, including local meats, pap, Chackalaka and more at the local joint Randz

This is a great place for Khayelitsha and I think everyone in and around the area should really support it 100% or more.
