One of the oldest museums in Sub-Saharan Africa, the Iziko South African Museum is home to more than half a million unique artifacts. Visitors can explore the halls of this historic place, which was founded in 1897, and learn more about the history and the people of the continent’s most-southern country.
Fossils dating some 700 million years back and tools fashioned by natives more than 120,000 years ago are just some of the unique—and archaic—items that make Iziko a destination for history lovers.
The museum is located at 25 Queen Victoria Street. It’s open daily from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Admission is R30 for adults, R15 for children, seniors and students.
