A museum that’s not a museum

We’re planning a new museum to tell the story of Cape Town: Your Cape Town… and we need to hear from you.

  • What stories should the Cape Town Museum tell?
  • Where should it tell those stories?
  • How should it tell those stories?
  • Who should tell those stories?

What does Cape Town mean to you?

Cape Town means many different things to many different people.
It’s been shaped by the many people who have lived here or visited here.
And they all have a different story of Cape Town.
If we had to ask you what Cape Town means to you, what would you say?
And what would your story of Cape Town tell?
