Winelands: Heart of Cape Town tour

Join Mensa Winelands for an exclusive, guided tour at the Heart of Cape Town Museum, situated within Groote Schuur Hospital, on Saturday 26 November at 14h00.

This hidden Cape Town gem has only recently reopened following a hiatus due to the pandemic.

We’ll enjoy a fascinating trip back in time, through historical, cultural, emotional, ethical, medical and scientific bases.

The tour culminates in an enthralling visit to the restored operating theatres in which Chris Barnard performed his historic heart transplant, featuring realistic reconstructions of the event.

The duration of the tour is two hours.
