Iziko Museums of South Africa (Iziko) operates Cape Town's premier cultural attractions. The 11 national museums, each with its own history and character, inspire our visitors through creative interpretation, education, research and information sharing – with professional and consistent, high-quality exhibitions, programmes and events.
 
Iziko is a dynamic institution adapting to the requirements of our developing democracy and the ever evolving cultural, scientific and heritage sector. Ubuntu is what guides us. We nurture the communities we serve and the partners who share our passion. In our work, we trust and respect diversity.

Iziko, is an isiXhosa word, meaning ‘hearth’, and embodies the spirit of a transformed institution and our vision of ‘African Museums of Excellence’. The hearth is traditionally and symbolically the social centre of the home; a place associated with warmth, kinship and the spirits of ancestors. Iziko was thus envisaged as a space for all South Africans to gather, nourish body and soul, and share stories and knowledge passed from one generation to the next. Iziko seeks to celebrate our heritage whilst generating new cultural legacies for future generations, and a society that has moved beyond the shackles of the past.
