Directions to National Museum of Cultural History
The National Cultural History Museum explores South Africa's cultural diversity in a range of permanent and temporary exhibitions. Exhibitions include rock paintings and engravings of the San people including 1,000 year old Iron Age figurines from Schroda in the Limpopo Province. These are widely considered to be the best known artefacts indicating ritual behaviour in the Early Iron Age. The Art Gallery presents an overview of South African culture through time, using cultural objects, crafts, sculpture and paintings and an exhibition on Marabastad.
With a vision to be the leading African heritage institution of excellence, the National Museum of Cultural History provides a fantastic unique insight into the rich and colourful history of South Africa. Through the use of brilliant artefacts, arts and exhibits, the museum brings to life the history of the rainbow nation before and after apartheid.
