Your experience


Maporeng is an interactive museum dealing with the origins of earth and mankind, our ancestors, people of South Africa, the environment and the future of earth.

Maropeng means “returning to the place of origin ~ the burial site of our ancestors” in Setswana, the main indigenous language in this area of South Africa.

You will see a massive burial mound called the Tumulus as you draw near, which is your entrance to learning the secrets of our ancestry and humankind all around the world.Travel back through time as you enter the museum passage.

A boat ride takes you back-back in time through snow and ice giving an indication of what the most recent ice age may have been like.

The journey goes back further into time, when the world was submerged in water, and beyond that to the formation of the earth’s crust and the shifting of the tectonic plates, and ends in a black hole where the earth was a molten ball of rock.

The exibition gives us and idea where we all come from, way back in time.
