Maropeng: Official Visitor Centre for the Cradle of Humankind

Heritage museum

"The Cradle of Humankind is where the earliest fossils of humans were found. It reminds me of how small we are in the greater scheme of everything, in our history. Maropeng, the visitor centre there, as a museum, as a place of knowledge production, is incredibly designed. There’s so much thought put into how everything is laid out and how you experience the knowledge imparted to you."
