Über das Museum

The great questions – who am I and why am I here; what comes before birth and after death – are explored at //hapo, which recounts the history of Africa. "//Hapz ge //hapo tama /haohasib dis tamas ka i bo" goes the Khoi proverb, meaning "A dream is not a dream until it is shared by the entire community."

Starting with the story of creation, //hapo unravels the complex tale of Africa across both time and space.

 
Named in Khoi for the word "dream", the //hapo interpretative centre tells the story of Africa, and of South Africa specifically, in seven parts. Each part is a distinct element in the evolution of the great continent.

Also called the Freedom Park Museum, //hapo draws together the park's elements to build a coherent and arresting narrative – from an African perspective – through interactive displays, vivid audio-visual presentations, performances and storytelling.

The story starts 3.6 million years ago with African creation legends, and describes the continent's, and South Africa's, rich and colourful history. It combines indigenous African knowledge and contemporary scientific thought to bring history to life. This story of the nation's rich and colourful history unfolds in seven eras.
