Robben Island Museum (RIM) has announced a 15% discount on all group tickets of three or more for the month of April. Ticket prices are usually R400 (€27.6) per adult and R210 (€14.5) per child under 18, but are now R340 (€23.4) and R178.50 (€12.3) respectively.
The ferry to Robben Island operates every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, at 11h00. Should the demand increase, additional tours will be made available.
During the months of lockdown, RIM used the opportunity to upgrade the island and expand on the range of exhibits. These include the visitor centre, the Sobukwe Complex, and the artillery room.
“We are indeed excited to give our visitors a sneak preview of some of the artifacts inside the maximum security prison, under the knowledgeable guidance of a former political prisoner, who speaks not only of the facts as recorded in the history books, but shares first-hand, an anecdotal encounter of life behind the bars of a once notorious prison, that is today a celebration of triumph over adversity,” said Siphuxolo Mazwi, RIM Senior Manager: Marketing and Tours.
