VISIT IRMA STERN’S STUDIO

Stern’s permanent exhibition is hosted in her home, which includes her studio, lounge and the well-known dining room. Visitors are free to walk through the house and explore Stern’s famous portraits, and a series of biblical paintings and artefacts she collected from her widespread travels (including ancient Roman and Pre-Columbian American pieces).


The museum is a unique experience of the space Irma Stern worked and lived in. Image: Irma Stern Museum

There is also a lush garden, which you can stroll through. It’s open to all UCT students, staff and visitors. Host meetings, enjoy a picnic, linger on with a book and read under a tree or socialise.
