Corner Adderley and Wale Streets, Cape Town, 8000

The Slave Lodge Museum is the second-oldest building in Cape Town, built in 1679, to accommodate the slaves that were shipped to the Cape Colony. Nowadays it hosts a museum on slavery in South Africa. 

The Slave Lodge was originally meant to house the thousands of slaves that arrived in the Cape Colony, but the building has also served as government offices, the South Africa Cultural History Museum and even the supreme court, thus having a rich and diverse, but also very somber history. Today, the museum hosts exhibitions on historical slavery as well as modern slavery.
