Ticket prices to the Robben Island Museum (RIM) are set to go up in June next year.

As of Monday 1 June 2020, RIM will apply a R50 increase on international tour prices and only a R20 increase on local tour prices.

This means South Africans will pay R400, while non-South Africans will pay R600.

South African children aged between two and 18 will pay R210, and non-South African elderly people will pay R300.

Robben Island’s standard tour comprises of a ferry return trip, transport on the island, a guided island tour and a guided prison tour.

Tickets are only sold at Robben Island Museum, Nelson Mandela Gateway, V&A waterfront or through Webtickets as a RIM approved online ticketing platform.

Passengers must arrive no later than 30 minutes prior to the scheduled times of departure, failure to do so could result in the forfeit of the ticket.

Boarding gates close 10 minutes before departure time.

Tickets are not transferable.
