Discover our amazing history at the National Cultural History Museum

The National Cultural History Museum explores South Africa's cultural diversity in various permanent and temporary exhibitions. Exhibitions include rock paintings and engravings of the San people; thousand year old Iron Age figurines from Schroda in the Limpopo Province (described as “the best known artifacts indicating ritual behaviour in the Early Iron Age”); the Art Gallery presents an overview of South African culture through time, using cultural objects, crafts, sculpture and paintings and an exhibition on Marabastad is a true example of a cosmopolitan and fully integrated rainbow nation. The Museum is located in the old South African Mint building behind (west of) the Pretoria City Hall, in the Pretoria CBD. It is easily accessible by road from all parts of the Gauteng Province. There is a Gautrain inner city bus drop off point right at the entrance to the Museum premises.
