Robben Island Museum

Google’s Cultural Institute offers you the opportunity to explore and discover locations, artwork, culture and more from all around the world.

Today I’m sharing with you their Robben Island Museum exhibition and virtual tour. Robben Island is located in South Africa and is a World Heritage site. It has been used throughout history as a location where people are sent to live in isolation such as a leper colony, but more notably for political figures like Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu, Tokyo Sexwale, Govan Mbeki, Dennis Brutus and Robert Sobukwe under the Apartheid.

When you arrive at the site, I suggest you begin your journey by watching the video option at the top left of the page on the welcome banner. It runs under two minutes long and shows you how to get the most out of your navigation options. The welcome banner also offers you the option to Take a Tour which can also be very helpful.

Once you’ve done that, or if you decide to dive right in, you can start by selecting how you want to start your exploration. Your options are the Exhibits, Streetview, or Items. Next to each you can click show all to view the entire collection of each category.

You can use your mouse wheel to scroll the page back and forth, or click the arrows on the side of the page.  I really liked the guided tours under Exhibits. I particularly enjoyed that they had videos that went a long with the content you were viewing from time to time.  I learned so much from each one, and they made me curious to explore on my own view street view and the items.

Now what are you waiting for? Go to take your virtual tour today!
