The museum focusing on natural history, international stature, and cultural history was initiated in late 19th century.

Oliewenhuis Art Museum, Bloemfontein Reviews

  • A beautiful gallery with a lovely garden. The trials through the natural foliage are one of my favourite hidden gems of Bloemfontein. The trials and gardens are dog friendly. The exhibitions are well thought out and presented beautifully. I would like to see the museum reopen its restaurant for public use outside of big events as this is a lovely place to sit and read or drink coffee with friends.

  • A must when visiting Bloemfontein. A gallery full of interesting art pieces, a restaurant serving delicious breakfasts, great picnic spots in the surrounding park, and a beautiful hiking trail. All can be found here.

  • Always exiting art exhibitions. Peaceful well maintained grounds to relax alone or a group. Art classes and restoration done. Has a good restaurant surrounded by art installations. Unique merry-go-round for the kids created by various artists. Lots of space to play. Art installations on the grounds need maintenance though. Would be sad if they degrade beyond repair.

  • Have a huge open and closed exhibition hall with many great art all over. Entrance is free and have lavish yards to relax and enjoy your lunch. Shows is often for great entertainment. Restaurant needs a little work on as well as the playground.

  • Great place to have a picnic or take strolls in their hiking area. For lovers of art the art gallery offers a wide range of indoor and outdoor art to enjoy. I'm just sad about the state of the restaurant and the now unkempt play area at the back. Please start and get done with the renovations so we can enjoy the place again.
