Vision

The Cape Town Museum is a project of the Western Cape Provincial Government, Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport with the vision to promote a socially inclusive, creative, active and connected Western Cape. It is envisaged as a world class museum exploring and reflecting on Cape Town as a dynamic network of people, processes and natural and man-made features that extend beyond the official geographical boundaries of the City. The mission for the Cape Town Museum is:

  • A museum that will produce and disseminate knowledge through collections in collaboration with community members and specialists;
  • A public space that plays an important role in the development of social inclusion and cohesion, building a culture of active citizenship, reflecting on collective identities and fosters respect for human rights and gender equality;
  • An inclusive public place that provide a platform to address social, economic and environmental concerns.
  • A dynamic, vibrant contemporary space with permanent and temporary exhibition space;
  • A hub for a larger virtual museum including leading edge augmented reality elements; and
  • A Centre for enriching educational and community engagement programmes.
