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.

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.
