Red Location Museum

The Red Location Museum in New Brighton was the first purpose built museum in a township in South Africa and is a tribute to the liberation struggle, specially in the Port Elizabeth townships.  There are lots of new developments in the Red Location Museum Precinct which included the opening of the new Red Location Backpackers.  I briefly visited New Brighton for a tree planting ceremony last week and really need to make a plan to get back there soon and have a look around the place again.


  1. Looks just up my street! Fantastic space. Cant wait to visit it.

  2. I went there last week during the architectural student congress. Such an amazing place. There are real good photo opportunities there, not just the museum but the art gallery and library too!
