The Friends of the South African Museum is an organisation open to people of all ages who are interested in learning and exploring the natural and social history of our country.

The focus of the Friends is to support and assist in the promotion of Iziko South African Museum and the work it does. At the same time Friends members have interesting activities and generate interaction between the diverse communities in our society.

With these objectives in mind the Friends arrange monthly lectures with varied and interesting speakers; day outings to places of interest in and around Cape Town and field trips in the company of scientists – palaeontologists, geologists, archaeologists, ornithologists, entomologists, astronomers and historians ranging from two to five days.

The Friends office at the Iziko South African Museum is attended by Maxine Davies on Wednesdays and Fridays from 10:00–16:00. Should you wish to make contact at other times you may phone Maxine at 072 225 6893.
