Description

Oliewenhuis Art Museum is housed in a Neo-Dutch style mansion which served as residence for the Governor General of the Union of South Africa. In 1985 it was converted into an Art Museum as a satellite of the National Museum Bloemfontein.

The Permanent Collection housed at Oliewenhuis is an outstanding collection of South African art, which includes a unique outdoor Sculpture Park and a working African Carousel, for which original sculptures were commissioned.

Temporary exhibitions of South African artists are regularly exhibited in the Museum galleries and the unique underground Reservoir gallery. Other highlights include the Blind Alphabet, an artwork created specifically for the sight-impaired and the functional Cement and Mosaic sculptures situated in the gardens.

Oliewenhuis Art Museum, 16 Harry Smith Street, Bloemfontein

Open Monday to Friday 08:00 - 17:00, Saturday 10:00 - 5:00, Sunday and Public Holidays 13:00 - 17:00. Closed on Good Friday and Christmas Day.

Nice - Got there too late but it is possible to relax on the lawns of Oliewenhuis with a picnic basket and bottle of wine.
