The Heart of Cape Town Museum is situated in the Old Building of the internationally acclaimed Groote Schuur Hospital. Professor Christian Barnard, a South African cardiac surgeon performed the first successful human heart transplant at the hospital in 1967. A two hour guided tour provides insight into the donor, the recipient, the ethical and religious issues of the time regarding "moment of death" and more. Most compelling are the restored life-like operating theatres where the surgery took place.
