I was born and raised in Pretoria but I only visited the art museum for the first time this year. I knew about it, I passed it daily on my way to school (Varsity) and later to work, I thought about visiting it and made mental note of it but I never got around to until this year. Perhaps I wasn’t serious about art all these years after all, but now that I am, I’ve been there twice within these past four weeks and because the entry is so affordable, I plan to visit often. The staff is also very friendly and extremely welcoming.
