Description:

Home to a large collection of cultural artifacts, the Slave Lodge in Cape Town's city bowl is a small museum dedicated to slavery in the Cape. The Slave Lodge was built in 1679 by the Dutch East India Company. Including housing nearly a thousand slaves, the building was the Cape's main brothel. After the British takeover, the building became the Supreme Court, a post office, government offices, and eventually a museum.
