Guide to Sasol Art Museum

The Sasol Art Museum is on Ryneveld Street in a beautiful red Dutch Neo-Classical building dating back to 1907. The building was previously home to the Bloemhof school. The museum building was restored with the aid of a grant from Sasol and in 1991 the museum opens its doors to the public.

The museum houses a permanent collection of over 3000 pieces belonging to the University of Stellenbosch. The collection features pieces related to South Africa's history, foreign artist works while in the country and many of South Africa's most reputed artists. In addition to the permanent collection the museum has a documented history of the university, paintings, sculptures, ceramics and graphics from the 19th and 20th centuries, and clothing, weaponry and ritual objects from Southern, Central and Western Africa.
