Johannesburg Planetarium was inaugurated on 12th October 1960, and was the first full-sized planetarium in South Africa, and the 2nd in the Southern Hemisphere. Its first instrument was originally a 1930s projector from Hamburg, that was completely rebuilt to modernise it. The planetarium programs a number of shows throughout the year for families and students, and children’s birthday parties can be organised. There are also regular astronomy courses throughout the year. On the planetarium web site, as in the planetarium souvenir shop, you’ll find maps of the moon and explanations as to how to find directions using the sun and the moon. Also there is a selection of telescopes and accessories to choose from.
Johannesburg Zoo dates from 1904 and occupies an area of land that covers approximately 54 hectares (130 acres). This land was originally donated to the city by a company called H. Eckstein & Co and for many years the zoo was operated by the Town Council on behalf of the people of the city. Today it is operated as a non profit making organisation. Johannesburg Zoo is dedicated to the conservation of animals and contains over 2,000 different animals from around 365 species. Amongst its most notable animals are White Lions and Siberian Tigers and it is one of only a handful of zoos in the world that has successfully bred both of these endangered cats. Perhaps its most famous resident however is “Max the Gorilla”. Facilities available include 4 food kiosks and 6 separate toilet blocks. Zoo buggies can be hired to transport visitors with reduced mobility around the park. The zoo is open daily from 8:30am to 5:30pm with extended opening hours during certain periods. Full details of the operating hours and admission prices are available on the website.
Hector Pieterson Memorial & Museum
The Hector Pieterson Memorial is located in Soweto and stands to commemorate Hector Pieterson, a 13 year old student that was killed during the student uprisings of the 1970‘s. Following his death he came to symbolise the youth resistance to apartheid and this memorial serves to honour not just Hector Pieterson but all of the 566 students that died during this uprising. The memorial stands on Khumalo Street, a few hundred metres from where the boy was shot on 16th June 1976 on Orlando Street. It was erected during the late 1990’s and forms part of the organised tourist tours of Soweto where it is now a popular tourist attraction. It was officially opened on 16th June 2002, along with the nearby museum where visitors can discover more about the life of the boy behind the memorial. The memorial is in the form of a red granite stone slab. The red colour is the same colour as the bricks that were used to construct the museum and represents the red colour of the houses that dominate the area.
