Red Location Museum, Port Elizabeth

The Red Location Museum is a museum in the New Brighton township of Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

The museum was opened to the public on 10 November 2006 as a tribute to the struggle against Apartheid. It is situated in a shack settlement that is one of the oldest townships in Port Elizabeth.
The area once housed a Boer concentration camp, but the camp’s residents were moved in 1900 when the site would become one of the first few urban settlements for Black people.
