Museum Africa Tours and Activities

Museum Africa

Museum Africa, Johannesburg’s main cultural and historical museum, occupies an imposing building which was once the city’s main fruit and vegetable market. Its inner city location is key; Museum Africa concentrates on urban living, and thus complements the numerous cultural displays which show life as it has been lived for centuries in rural areas.

One of the most interesting interactive displays examines the importance of gold for South Africa – not just the prosperity it has brought, but the high human toll of the mining industry. Elsewhere you’ll find The Sounds of the City, an exhibit which highlights Jo’Burg’s dazzling musical heritage, a phenomenon which echoes far beyond the city itself. A recreation of a shebeen, a type of shanty bar, puts the unique melodies and rhythms of the townships in context.

Practical Info

Museum Africa is centrally located in Newtown, right at the edge of the business district.

Address: 121 Bree Street, Newtown, Johannesburg, Gauteng 2001, South Africa

The One Joburg City Tour

The One Joburg City Tour

Travelers often ask, what can one do in Johannesburg, and how safe is it? The most common answer is, "The Usual". Most tours are the same, within the mainstream and always take the traveler beyond the inner city. The city of Johannesburg has a lot to offer, and one needs to know where to look. And this is what makes AfroSphere Tours and Travel different. We take you where others never go, without compromising the aspect of safety. This special tour will give you a unique opportunity to explore the inner city. It is intended to create a one of a kind experience. The city tour covers the architectural, historical and cultural heritage of Johannesburg. It is designed to help you gain better understanding not only of Johannesburg but South Africa at large and beyond.
