Die Afrikaanse Taalmuseum
Afrikaans is one of the youngest languages in the world, born in the Cape during the 17th Century. The language is seen as a daughter language of Dutch, but it also has strong Malay, Portuguese and indigenous roots.
A guided tour through the musuem will give you a sense of how diverse Afrikaans – the first language of six-million South Africans and 55 percent of people in the Western Cape – really is.
Situated in the Georgian-style home of Gideon Malherbe, the museum was established to honor people of the Genootskap van Regte Afrikaners (association of true Afrikaners) who worked to establish Afrikaans as a written language, to standardise it and to publish in it. Malherbe was one of the leaders of the Genootskap.
