Museums are spaces of exploration and discovery, responsible for the preservation, research, collection and exhibition of our tangible and intangible heritage for enjoyable educational, learning and research purposes.
Today, especially during these globally turbulent times, museums, now more than ever can offer experiences that can restore, reconnect and rejuvenate heart, mind and soul. In accordance with the nation-wide level 4 lockdown restrictions issued by the South African President, Iziko Museums of South Africa will remain temporarily closed until further notice.
Museums wield the potential to serve as platforms from which cultural exchange, awareness and enrichment can be facilitated in order to promote tolerance and understanding. The Public Programmes offered at Iziko encourage inclusionary discussion, inter-generational dialogues, as well as provide insight to our diverse and dynamic cultural, natural and artistic heritage. The programmes provide an opportunity for members of the public to participate in events and activities that are meaningful, relevant and educational
