The District Six Museum acquired a second site in 2002 not far from the museum, in fact in the same road, two blocks away. The new building, at 15 Buitenkant Street was formally the Sacks Futeran Textile and Soft Goods Warehouse and was called The Home Coming Centre. It functions as a second home for exhibits from the District Six Museum, and is now a part of the Cultural Heritage Precinct. It is on the border of an area that has been nominated as a World Heritage site. The Centre has been re-constructed in the style of he 1900’s and is now a magnificent space doing justice to the former District Six residents.
The goal of the Centre is to make the centre a vibrant multi-purpose hub serving the community with some additions such as:
The large building consists of 5 interconnected buildings and has a section of an old Gothic-style church as its centrepiece surrounded by four 20th century warehouses. Much restoration was needed before they became habitable.
