Museum Africa is situated in the heart of the Newtown Cultural Precinct – Johannesburg’s leading history museum. It is housed in what was the first purpose built fruit and vegetable market in 1913, which at the time was a fine example of the advances made in industrial building techniques. In 1990 the market building was imaginatively adapted to house Museum Africa, a new museum that opened its doors in 1994, the year of South Africa’s first non-racial, democratic elections.
