Iziko Museums of South Africa operates the premier public art and cultural destinations in Cape Town. This flagship heritage institution, manages 11 national museums; collection-specific libraries; a world-class Social History Archive and the most advanced digital Planetarium and Digital Dome on the African Continent.

IZIKO is an isiXhosa word, meaning ‘hearth’, traditionally and symbolically the social centre of the home; a place associated with warmth, kinship and ancestral spirits. Here food is prepared and shared, stories are told, and knowledge passed from one generation to the next. Similarly, the museums that make up Iziko are spaces for cultural interaction. We are proud to ignite connections between our shared history, our heritage, and each other.
