Wits Art Museum (WAM)

Wits Art Museum had humble beginnings as a collection meant as a teaching aid at the university. Generous patronage from Norman Herber allowed the enthusiastic faculty to acquire newer works. A major donation of classical African art in 1978 set things rolling, and today, the museum has one of the finest collections of African art in the country. From modern works to historical art from all over Africa, the collection is all-encompassing to say the least. The Standard Bank African Art Collection is the focal point of the museum. Other prominent exhibits include the Wits Museum of Ethnology Collection, The Sekoto Collection and The Robert Hodgins Print Archive. The modern, purpose-built museum building has state-of-the-art facilities to preserve the works. The on-site cafe offers a selection of snacks and light bites. Check website for more.

The Life Sciences Museum and Biodiversity Centre

Housed in the Witwatersrand University property, The Life Sciences Museum and Biodiversity Centre claims to be the only museum of life sciences in the city of Johannesburg. Established in 2003, this museum was formed by the merger of the C. E. Moss Herbarium and Zoology museum. The C. E. Moss herbarium dates back to 1917 and boasts of a collection of 100000 botanical specimens from around the world. The Zoology museum dates back to 1922 and was founded by the Zoology Head of Department Professor Fantham. This museum was started as an attempt for the better understanding of the subject with the collections imported from Europe. Now, the zoology museum boasts of a collection of 60,000 specimens, out of which 40,000 are embryological specimens which are touted to be one of the largest embryological collections in the southern hemisphere.
