summary Heritage Interpretation Centres are specially created facilities for evaluation of the cultural and/or natural heritage of a given area and its transformation into an educational, cultural or tourism product. Approach to heritage and architectural means of expression in the creation of contemporary Heritage Interpretation Centres and the impact on users, especially European ones, are presented on the example of buildings from South Africa (The Mapungubwe Interpretation Centre, Alexandra Interpretation Centre, Freedom Park). Field studies of selected buildings allowed an assessment of how effective and easy to read the message of cultural heritage was for people from the outside, and by what architectural means it was possible.
