The renowned Robben Island Museum has been nominated for a World Travel Award.
The museum’s nomination falls under the Leading Tourist Attraction category.
The museum dates back to the early 1300s and remains one of Cape Town’s most visited attractions.
Public voting closes today, so those who wish to cast their votes should do so without delay.
Abigail Thulare, The museum’s CEO said the award would go a long way to ensure the museum remains relevant for generations to come.
“(The museum) is so much more than a tourist destination. As we prepare to celebrate Freedom Day, it stands as a bastion of all that should be remembered in the liberation struggle for the freedom that we all enjoy today.”
The World Travel Awards has been going on for 30 years. It’s one of the most highly regarded awards in the travel and tourism industry.
The museum isn’t the only place in the Mother City that received a nomination. Nine other places in Cape Town have also been nominated in 2023.
