Experience the drama of the world’s first human heart transplant!

The fascinating and very emotional stories of the donor, recipient and medical team involved are told on a fully guided, 2 hour tour.  The human heart transplant, one of the greatest moments in medical history, was made possible  by Professor Christiaan Neethling Barnard.
