Iziko Museums of South Africa (Iziko) operates 11 national museums, each with its own history and character. The name Iziko, an isiXhosa word, meaning ‘hearth’, embodies the spirit of a transformed institution and our vision as African museums of excellence. The three ‘flames’ in our hearth logo represent the three collections brought together in our museums; Social History (ochre); Art (red); and Natural History (green).
