District Six Museum is dedicated to the memory of the inner-city residential area District Six, established in 1867 near the docks as a vibrant community of former slaves, immigrants, merchants, artisans and laborers. A century later, the apartheid regime claimed that the mixed, mostly colored neighborhood had become a dangerous, festering slum and declared it a white neighborhood. More than 60,000 people were forcibly removed, homes flattened and only houses of worship left standing. It was never redeveloped. The museum opened in 1994 with the fall of apartheid to chronicle the history.
