I had no idea what I was getting into. I just saw the museum sign an decided to go in. I learned more about S.A art history in one hour than most history classes.

Good collection of local art. An hour should be more than enough. There is a small entrance fee, but well worth it.

Very well kept. Paid R20pp but worth the money. Lots of security because there is a painting worth R35milj and many more to see. Enjoyed it. But not more than that to see. Clean and well kept garden also.
