Museum Africa is in a large building on Mary Fitzgerald Square that was built in 1913 as a fruit and vegetable market. The museum covers the rich history of the African continent and has impressive exhibits on the development of Johannesburg, including a display on the five-year, Apartheid era Treason Trial of 156 people (including Nelson Mandela and Walter Sisulu) who were all charged with and acquitted of treason.
