Rust en Vrede Cultural Museum

With a tranquil and idyllic setting that belies its rather serious past, the Rust-en- Vrede Museum is home to a Durbanville art gallery with a clay museum, art studios and a coffee shop by the name of YOCO Eatery. Although originally built in the 1840s, it was declared a national monument in 1984.

Exhibitions are varied, wonderful and enticing. A display of intricately detailed ceramics and the varied work of mosaic studios have featured as has work from artists such as Lynie Olivier, Artemis Angelopulo and Gregory Kerr.

The Clay Museum is the first of its kind in South Africa, with a contemporary collection of the country’s ceramics and techniques of making, decorating and firing. Studios on the site include skilled florists, qualified goldsmiths, art classes and a craft market.
