History Museum
“I love the educating side of it all. It's like they have all the history of Johannesburg summarised into one huge building of a museum. ”

History Museum
“The Museum of African Design (popularly known as MOAD) opened in a cavernous former-industrial building in the Maboneng Precinct in downtown Johannesburg in late 2013. The museum does not own a permanent collection, but hosts a new exhibition every four months, showcasing disciplines as varied as African fashion and furniture to architecture, landscaping and public art. Hours: Tuesday - Friday, 10:00 to 17:00, Saturday and Sunday, 11:00 to 18:00.”

“Gandhi's home when he lived in Joburg from 1908 to 1909, as he was traveling extensively between Joburg, London and India, raising money and attention for Indian liberation. Beautifully restored and inspiring, the museum actually rents out rooms and conference space. ”

Scenic lookouts

Scenic Lookout
“Catch a sundowner from the Koppies. Closed after dark and try to go in a group of at least 2 for safety reasons. Great views over Johannesburg and to the Magaliesberg/Northcliff.”

Scenic Lookout
“One of the best views over Jo'burg! Beautiful on a sunny day and magical at sunset. Free entry. Gates open at 07:00 and close at 18:00. Take a picnic or a bottle of wine and enjoy the view with friends. There are benches, but big rocks to sit on too. Easily Northcliff's best attraction.”
