  • Wonderful exhibits of South African artists. More extensive than you would get in most places. This is a world class museum. Though small, it presents art in a very professional and informative manner.
  • One of the most engaging art galleries in Cape Town. R20.00 entry fee and an astounding collection of S.A. masters on display, the highlight being the Pierneef Jhb Railway panels. Don't miss this gallery id you love art and art history.
  • Extraordinary art and amazing history. Well done to the Rupert's for sharing this wonderful art to the world.
  • Incredible private art collection. The Pierneef station panels exhibit is an incredibly intimate view on a part of South African history that is now practically invisible. I have no idea why this place is so quiet. Take the walk. It's totally worth it.
  • Really fun to see my favorite works in the flesh
