Oliewenhuis Art Museum - Review

The museum focusing on natural history, international stature, and cultural history was initiated in late 19th century. The museum is set in the neo-Dutch style house that served as a house for the governor general of Union of South Africa. It now houses a permanent exhibition of South African art including an outdoor sculpture working African Carousel. Local artists also exhibit their works on periodic temporary exhibitions. Blind alphabet is the art work of sight impaired and is a popular highlight.

Oliewenhuis Art Museum, Bloemfontein Reviews

  • 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.

  • A good use of an old building and space. My favorite place in Bloemfontein to wander between art.

  • Beautiful place even just to relax in the garden...nice restaurant with delicious meals and friendly staff....Gallery...everything is impeccable
