The National Cultural History Museum explores South Africa’s cultural diversity in various permanent and temporary exhibitions.

Exhibitions include rock paintings and engravings of the San people; thousand year old Iron Age figurines from Schroda in the Limpopo Province (described as "the best known artefacts indicating ritual behaviour in the Early Iron Age").

The Art Gallery presents an overview of South African culture through time, using cultural objects, crafts, sculpture and paintings and an exhibition on Marabastad is a true example of a cosmopolitan and fully integrated rainbow nation before apartheid.
