“Excellent museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2013

The Rupert Museum is well worth the visit. Everything from the outside to inside is well tended and beautiful. I have taken my niece and nephews there more than once and has never been disappointed. Admission rates are reasonable and the staff were informative and friendly.

“Takes one back in time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2013

I visited the museum 3 time over the last year or so - accompanying visitors. I go back in time everytime I see the Pierneef collection which once hung in the Jhb. Railway Station. The collection is amazing and when looking at the Cape sky some days you realise where he got the cloud formations from. Very pleasant experience and of course all the other collections are something to behold. Willem Strydom that exhibited there at the times I visited is also an amazing artist - worth visiting if his work is stil displayed.

“European Art mixed with South African at its best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2013

Visiting a museum means being confronted with the collection of the owner - here at the Rupert`s you will find a beautiful composition of well-known european artists (20th century) and important traditional and contemporary south-african ones.
Its absolutely worth it!

“great museum but hard to find!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2012

A great place to visit but make sure you know where to look for it as it's pretty well hidden.
The staff was wonderfully informative and interesting as well.
