this place is a real gem, it's worth a visit. The museum is located in what used to be the artist's house. It is very well kept and well organized. Has been a real surprise to see all those paintings and the decorations still in the house. It's an excellent place to visit

This, her former home, is full of her paintings which today are worth a considerable amount. Others are all over the world. She is delightful in her use of colour and they are in the main, a joy to see

Immerse yourself in the color, texture and pure beauty of Irma Stern's world. Take the time to revel in her art, her style of life, and her choice of books. When in Cape Town enjoy the wines, the sites and the views, but do not miss this treasure.

The setting , being in Irma Stern;s own house, is really interesting and the art works look very much at home. Vibrant and lively with interesting colour combinations

The Irma Stern museum is an art gallery that all South Africans can be proud of. Visit the home of Irma Stern's work as well as a few other pieces. Near to UCT and other colleges makes it a convenient learning center. My parents came with me at the time and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Excellent use of upper gallery space and curation. Plus the opportunity to visit the museum itself which allows a glimpse into Irma Sterns life and surroundings.

The museum is in the artist's original home. A wide variety of her art is on display. The staff at the museum is very very friendly ! They also give one a short historic overview of the artists life. Any art lover must stop in Cape Town to see this collection.

The Irma Stern Museum is situated in the house where this extraordinary artist lived and worked for the most of her life.

Each time I visit this museum I come away with decor ideas I want to try at home. You can enjoy some examples of Irma Stern's artworks but even better is the chance to experience her collections of artifacts from around the world, her studio which would inspire anyone to pick up a paintbrush and her peaceful garden.
