Wits Art Museum

Le Wits Art Museum connut de modestes débuts, en tant que collection visant à enseigner l’aide humanitaire à l’université. Un patronage généreux de la part de Norman Herber lui permit par la suite d’acquérir des œuvres plus récentes. Un don majeur d’œuvres d’art africaines classiques en 1978 lança son développement et le musée compte aujourd’hui l’une des plus belles collections d’art africain du pays. D’œuvres modernes à historiques provenant de toute l’Afrique, cette collection est désormais vraiment complète. La Standard Bank African Art Collection est le point focal du musée, qui abritent également la Wits Museum of Ethnology Collection, la Sekoto Collection et la Robert Hodgins Print Archive. Moderne et construit sur mesure pour abriter le musée, le bâtiment compte des installations de pointe afin de préserver toutes ces œuvres. Vous y trouverez aussi un café proposant une sélection de collations et rafraîchissements.

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.

Goodman Gallery

The Goodman Gallery is situated just minutes away from the happening suburb of Rosebank, with its plethora of hotels, restaurants, bars, and clubs. Home to the works of many of South Africa's most respected artists, the gallery holds exhibitions roughly once a month, but there is quite a variety of contemporary artworks perennially on display. These range from works produced by older, well-established artists, to artworks created on the cutting edge of local culture and experience. Anyone with an interest in the fine arts would do well to pay a visit to the Goodman Gallery and have a justifiably long browse.
