Historically a pantry, prison, military base and leper colony among other things, today Robben Island ("seal island") is a living museum and world heritage site.

Robben Island Museum tours of the island are conducted via the Nelson Mandela Gateway ferry terminal in the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront next to the V&A Waterfront clock tower. The old Robben Island Embarkation Building is a separate Robben Island Museum exhibition site situated on Jetty 1 in the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, diagonally opposite the Nelson Mandela Gateway building and the V&A Waterfront clock tower.
