In response to the state president’s speech on 11 July 2021 and the latest government directives, we have adopted the following measures:

– The monument and museum are closed to visitors and all public programmes during this period are cancelled.
– Our staff will be on duty as far as possible, and will be available via email and social networks to handle inquiries and urgent issues. All our facilities have effective soaps/disinfectants, and protective clothing will be issued to employees. All Covid-19 protocols are followed.

Our website – – has a virtual tour of both the monument and museum, extensive information in six languages as well as dozens of links to interesting articles on Afrikaans, multilingualism and the monument’s past and future.

The safety and health of our staff and the community remain our priority.
