Oliewenhuis Art Museum Reviews & Ratings

  • We are artists ourselves and loved our visit to Oliewenhuis Art Museum so much. Being able to experience the works of South Africa's best artists up close and personal was very special. If you love art this is the one venue in Bloemfontein that you just cannot miss!!

  • Best contemporary art museum in Bloemfontein. You can take a mini hike through their hiking trails and have a quick siesta on the lawn. The facility is safe as there are security guards throughout the Museum and is comforting to know that I can take a nap without anything happening to me. I love it.

  • A great place to visit if you're an art enthusiast or you just want to have a chilled day on the lawn.... Pity with this water shortage the grass isn't what it used to be but still a great place to chill in the shade. Plus it's pawfect for the lil furry friends 😊

  • 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.

  • Very nice art museum Very educational and a wide variety of interesting art Also great for having picnics
