WELCOME TO THE 18 GANGSTER MUSEUM

18 Gangster Museum is the first of its kind in Africa. This innovative living museum aims to help South African youth to better understand the treacherous path that too many in their communities take into gangsterism and, ultimately, prison. More importantly, 18 Gangster Museum seeks to offer a positive alternative.

Incorporating immersive text and imagery and a replica prison cell, 18 Gangster Museum’s installations are curated by ex-offenders who share their real-life experiences of gangsterism and prison and how they turned their lives around.

Visit 18 Gangster Museum today, and be part of the movement to demystify the scourge of gangsterism in our communities.
