Whether you like nature, art, and culture, or family-friendly fun, you’ll find something you’re searching for in Cape Town. This South African city is a heaven on Earth for art lovers, and here are a few museums and galleries that you shouldn’t miss for the world if you ever find yourself here.
Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art
Cape Town is home to the world’s largest museum of contemporary African art, located inside the historic grain silo next to the V&A Waterfront. Zeitz Museum has only been around since 2017, but that didn’t stop it from growing into one of Cape Town’s leading museums with an impressive contemporary African art collection.
Iziko South African National Gallery
In addition to featuring an impressive collection of African art, Cape Town’s most significant international gallery is best known for housing a collection of European art dating back from the 17th to the 19th century.
Amazing galleries are scattered all across Cape Town, but none of them compares to this one. In addition to having a branch in the South African capital, Goodman Gallery also has locations in Johannesburg and London, and their space is dedicated to celebrating established and emerging artists in southern Africa.
