Hubby and I have visited this museum a couple of times and it's certainly one of the most interesting places I've been to with some amazing contemporary art pieces.
I regret that I cannot recall many of the artist names or details as it's been a while since I've been.
The good news for locals in South Africa is that we have free entry on Wednesdays between 09h00-13h00 which with the economy as it is makes for a good incentive to visit the museum at least once
Be warned that you will come across some interesting art concepts

I include quite a few of his art works as I find it intriguing, disturbing on some levels but yet fun on others as we had a few good giggles looking at it all and taking it in. I include a link up top where you can read more on the photographer Robert Ballens.

Not sure at all? 🤔 It looks like it should be a human representation?
And then we had some fun outside the museum where there's a whole lot of these funny swiveling, rotating seats which makes for a lot of fun and laughter.
This is a museum that I will visit again and again. It houses many local artists and has some quirky and fun art pieces that you won't forget in a hurry. Definitely a bucket list item if you are visiting South Africa.
