Wits Art Museum

Museum in Johannesburg

Completed in May 2012, this is one of the leading museums of African art on the continent. Although it has an extraordinary collection of 10,000 works – which it shares with the Johannesburg Art Gallery – you'll only see a tiny fraction here, as there is a dynamic program of events and exhibitions including ones of international artists.

With its clean, modern lines, the space will also appeal to architecture buffs.
