The art museum was a delight to visit. It has a good collection of the work of older and contemporary South African artists. The building is also quite beautifully restored. It is worth a visit!

It is absolutely worth paying the little entrance fee of R10. There is a beautiful collection of art from a lot of different South African artists.

A beautiful old building with an interesting history which has been immaculately restored and houses an excellent collection of art by SA artists. Well worth a visit even by non-art gallery aficionados like me.

This is a very varied collection featuring the work of some of our 'modern' South African icon artists. From traditional to abstract there is something to appeal to everyone. The venue is beautiful with an amazing timber ceiling.
