Museum Night

Museum Night

A multi-institution after hours cultural experience, Museum Night – in partnership with Iziko Museums of South Africa – invites the public to explore their city’s museums and cultural institutions after dark, and free of charge.

Experience a series of fun and interesting performances, walkabouts, mini-workshops, exhibitions and more at the Iziko South African Museum, National Gallery, Iziko Slave Lodge and the Planetarium – which will be open from 6 until 9pm on Thursday, 21 February.

We’ll be hosting a variety of events in line with the current displays up on exhibition – with specialists, scientists, artists and poets bringing to life Iziko Museum’s very own histories and inhabitants. And what’s more – there’ll also be a number of treats and snacks available to keep us sustained as the museum transforms into a space for adventure, learning and enlightenment – all after dark! 

Entice your inner explorer this Museum Night with a variety of enthralling exhibits and events, celebrating in our diverse cultures, shared histories, and ground-breaking scientific studies. See Iziko Museums of South Africa in a new light!
