About Bo Kaap
The Bo-Kaap is an area of Cape Town, South Africa formerly known as the Malay Quarter. It is situated on the slopes of Signal Hill above the city centre and is an historical centre of Cape Malay culture in Cape Town. Bo-Kaap is traditionally a multicultural area, rich in history and situated on the slopes of Signal Hill. The area is known for its brightly coloured homes and romantic cobble stoned streets.
The museum, which dates back to the 1760s, is the oldest house in the area still in its original form. It highlights the cultural contribution made by early Muslim settlers, many of whom were skilled tailors, carpenters, shoe makers and builders. It contains 19th century furnishings which include a fine Cape drop-leaf dining table, Cape Regency-style chairs and a bridal chamber decorated to match the bride's dress. The museum is distinguishable by its voorstoep—a type of front terrace with a bench at each end emphasizing the polarizing aspect of Cape Muslim culture.
The City Centre is a small walk (around 500 meters). When it comes to fun and entertainment, Cape Town is the mother of all cities, and there’s no such thing as a dull moment if you’re in the heart of it: the Cape Town city centre. If it's culture, shopping or dinning out you are looking for, Cape Town has it all.
