Celebrate Heritage Month in September

Posted on August 19, 2019

During September, South Africa celebrates National Heritage Day (Tuesday, 24 September 2019).  The UP Museums invite you to come explore more than ten different galleries celebrating UP’s art, heritage and sculptural collections. Come see the famous Mapungubwe Collection or view the oldest item of South African furniture, see really ancient objects such as a 5000-year old Mesopotamian clay tablet, and some of the exciting contemporary works such as “Transformation of Identity” and many more unique museum objects and artworks that form part of our collective heritage right on your campus doorstep.  Come and take a leisurely walk of the new UP Sculpture Route, an easy and outdoor stroll to see highlight sculptures on the main campus.


There will be free tours offered during the month of September during the lunch hour from 12:00 to 13:00.  To confirm your spot on a tour as part of the September Heritage Programme on the following dates:
