The South African Jewish Museum

Interactive and high tech, the South African Jewish Museum offers visitors a truly unique experience with its bold architectural design and engaging accounts of South African Jewish history.

The displays are divided between two buildings where one is general Jewish history while the other covers the Holocaust. The museum shop stocks African embroidered challah covers, ceramic Judaica, designer jewelry, beaded and ceramic mezuzahs, Jewish cookbooks, books on Jewish socio-political themes and a wide selection of children’s books.

The restaurant is also worth a visit and there’s a jungle gym for children to play on.
