NEW BATHO EXHIBITION TAKING SHAPE

The new Batho exhibition under construction in the National Museum

The new Batho exhibition that is currently under construction in the National Museum is making good progress.  A team of experts, including Jeanine Visser of the Museum’s Design Department and members of the Museum’s workshop, are working long hours to construct, among other things, a replica of a typical Batho house.  The objective is to recreate the atmosphere of an old Batho street scene complete with red brick buildings and a gravel street.  Multimedia hardware and sound equipment will also be incorporated into the display so that visitors can be offered an interactive museum experience.  The exhibition will be officially opened on 6 December 2013.
