The Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa is truly one of a kind, as the largest art museum on the African continent, and the largest museum in the world that showcases the art of Africa and its diaspora. The Zeitz Museum is dedicated not only to showcasing these unique artworks, but to researching, collecting, and exhibiting this art to the very best of their ability. The museum houses an impressive collection of work from all over the continent and beyond. The exhibition space covers 6,000 square meters over nine floors, with 100 gallery spaces.
The museum artwork is not the only thing that makes it rather special, the museum is ‘house’ or the building where it is housed is an important historical landmark; the old grain silo at the V&A Waterfront. The silos were built in 1921 and were the industrial heart of the harbour area for almost a century. Not to mention these silos were the tallest buildings in Africa for a long time, before being overtaken.
