Play Africa is a groundbreaking, community-connected children’s museum based at Constitution Hill, Play Africa is a shared public space that champions children’s rights, inspires children and strengthens family relationships by offering unique three-dimensional learning experiences. Based at the iconic Constitution Hill, Play Africa transforms and re-casts the former prison into a joyful hub of play, learning and discovery.
