A comprehensive collection of traditional Zulu objects has been built up. These objects have a long history and besides their aesthetic qualities they embody certain cultural values and meanings. Gallery staff are always happy to talk about the works to visitors.

There is also a collection of crafts and informal artworks. The inclusive nature of the collection has a broad appeal and it promotes the contemporary spirit of art making in South Africa.
