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.
