“Home of SA Art”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

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.

“South African art lovers must see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

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.

“A hidden art treasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

The Irma Stern Museum is situated in the house where this extraordinary artist lived and worked for the most of her life. The place has a personal atmosphere, a huge collection of african art and last but not least, Irma Sterns lovely paintings. A "must" visit for people who are interested in art.
The place could benefit from instructing the people working there to give out more background information, and the beautiful garden deserves better maintenance.
