Housed in Amlay House, King George Way, Simon’s Town, the Heritage Museum was set up in 1998. The Amlays were the last residents to be forcibly moved from their home in Simon’s Town as a result of the Group Areas Act of 1966. Artifacts, displays and photos recreating the lives of the vibrant community are on show.

The Museum details more specifically on the history of the Muslim (Cape Malay, Indian) of the Cape- their traditions, culture and religion. We do genealogies, especially for the people of Simon’s Town.

Visiting hours: Tuesday-Thursday 11am-4pm, Sunday 11-4pm. Entrance R5.
