Museum Night V&A Waterfront

With the launch of its successful pilot in February 2015 that was followed by a “larger and richer” programme over ten museums around Cape Town’s CBD in March of this year, Museum Night is making its way to one of Cape Town’s most popular local and tourist destinations, the V&A Waterfront.

With the same concept and founders as First Thursday, this cultural experience takes place after hours and is open to the public.

Enjoy museum “hopping” around the V&A; listening to a programme of music; watching performances; and feasting your eyes and tummy on a variety food.

The highlights to look forward to include:

  • the Robbin Island Jetty Museum that’s housed in the embarkation building for prisoners who were sent to Robben Island and was used by Robben Island maximum security prison from 1962;
  • the Golf Hall of Fame which documents the history of golf in South Africa;
  • the Zeitz MOCCA Pavilion, the first major museum in Africa that has been dedicated to contemporary art;
  • the Springbok Rugby experience that takes visitors on an interactive journey through history of South African rugby;
  • the Two Oceans Aquarium which will be offering half the priced tickets on the night, R35 -75 and free for children under the age of four years;
  • Watch how the Watershed is transformed into a creative exchange which will include dating style skill sharing sessions, art installation, exhibitions; and so much more.

“Discover the museums of the V&A Waterfront in a new light, after dark.”
