Friends of the Iziko South African Museum

The Friends of the Iziko 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.

Who are we?

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 the opportunity to participate in interesting activities with the aim of generating
interaction between the diverse communities in our society.


What do we do?

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.
