"Extensive Collection"

Wits Art Museum had humble beginnings, as a collection that was meant to be a teaching aid at the university. Generous patronage from Norman Herber allowed the faculty to acquire newer works. A major donation of classical African art in 1978 started things, 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 extensive. 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 museum building has state-of-the-art facilities to preserve the works. The on-site cafe offers a selection of snacks and light bites.
