Accommodation near South African Jewish Museum

The South African Jewish Museum is located in Cape Town, South Africa on Hatfield Street in Gardens. This Museum focuses on the history of the South African Jewish people, the Jewish religion and culture as well as the role of the Jewish community in the struggle for freedom against the Apartheid government.

The museum has an entrance through the Company Gardens that is framed beautifully by an arch way created by the branches of the surrounding trees.

The museum is a stop on the City Sightseeing red bus route, which takes tourists to various pertinent sights around the Cape Peninsula. City Sightseeing patrons are granted free entrance to the museum upon displaying their bus passes at the reception. The museum is open from Sunday to Thursday from 10am- 5pm and on Fridays from 10am-2pm and closed on Saturdays as Friday and Saturday are the Jewish Sabbath.

The Nelson Mandela Auditorium within the museum seats 100 people and is equipped with the latest technology. It is used for small conferences, movie screenings, lectures and workshops.

On offer at the museum is a fully comprehensive audio tour that leads the museum patron through 21 significant parts of the museum. These audio tours include annotations on the history of South Africa and the different pertinent personalities, so that patrons might have a full understanding of the exhibits.

One of the main attractions in the museum is the Hidden Treasures of Japanese Art: The Isaac Kaplan Collection. This collection consists of miniature works of Japanese art and is offered with an audio guide that elaborates on the different works on display, the lives of the various artists and the materials they worked with.

Gardens Reviews

Best area in Cape Town in terms of convenience.
- David Lynn

Gardens is an awesome area with so much life and interesting things to do and see. However, traffic can be a nightmare with the narrow roads and erratic drivers.
- Alice Chan

For a pleasant, comfortable and convenient stay in Cape Town you could not do better. We stepped out the door and across the street to the cool, quiet gardens which we could walk through to most of the central attractions in 10 or 15 minutes.
- Janet Leeming

One of the best areas in the Central CBD with a number of great, cozy restaurants, coffee shops and the like. Great to explore on foot, lazing in the Company Gardens, going for high tea at the Mount Nelson Hotel, the options are endless and best of all, it's central to almost everything.

Definitely a "must explore" when in Cape Town.
