Welcome

Our unique museum entices visitors to experience the ancient, sometimes mystical relationship that exists between gold and the African continent throughstate-of-the-art visuals and artistic displays.


The museum is home to a collection of 350 WestAfrican gold artefacts as well as objects from theancient gold civilisations of southern Africa.


The purpose of the collection is to preserve the art of African goldsmithing while inspiring contemporary design.


Temporary exhibitions from countries as diverse as India, Brazil, Mali and Egypt explore the commonality of this theme across geographical borders and cultural divides.
