Gold of Africa Museum Tours

Much of South African history is built on gold mining, but at the Gold of Africa Museum in Cape Town the focus is not on the mining of gold but of the art of goldsmithing.

Exhibits in the Gold of Africa Museum feature exquisitely wrought gold jewelry and art pieces made in West Africa in the 19th and 20th centuries. The collection includes pieces from Senegal, Mali, and the Cote d'Ivoire, with a gold lion from Ghana serving as the museum's symbol. There are temporary exhibits, too, which highlight the art of goldsmithing from other parts of the world, and the museum shop sells 18- and 20-carat gold items. The large on-site restaurant is a Cape Town hotspot.

Practical Info

Located in Cape Town's central business district in the Martin Melck House, the Gold of Africa Museum is open Monday-Saturday 9:30am-5pm. Tickets cost SAR40 for adults, and SAR25 for children under 10.
