AA walk up the beautiful Company’s Garden, at the top of Cape Town, takes you to the South African Museum. Here you can view San rock art and displays of African maths and science. Afterwards, go next door to the Iziko Planetarium - one of the most advanced digital planetariums on the African continent - where art, science and entertainment meet.
These displays form part of the natural history, human and maritime sciences collections housed in the South African Museum, the oldest museum in the country. Founded in 1825, these collections were obtained in the 19th and 20th centuries.
They include pre-colonial and colonial artefacts, traditional arts and crafts from several cultures and San rock art, including those removed from caves when it was still considered acceptable to do so.
