Well worth a visit
okt. 2019
My wife and I spent a morning at this wonderful museum, which we learned about while trip planning using Lonely Planet as a reference. The art (drawings, oils, gouache, sculpture) was lovely, and it was great to view these items in the artist's own home. There is a 20 minute documentary that plays in a continous loop, and it provides a lot of information about Irma Stern and her life. Check out the gardens in the back as well as the side building that highlights particular aspects of select paintings ( three Madeira paintings currently). The small gift shop also sells a book, "At Home with Irma Stern", which provides additional information too.

It was great discovering a new-to-us artist who was under-appreciated during her lifetime. Also, the South African National Gallery is displaying a number of her pieces currently as well.

Regarding the practicalities, the museum is located close to the University of Cape Town and there is parking on the street in front of the museum. A possible day trip might include this museum for a couple of hours and then a short drive to Kirstenbosch for lunch and then a couple of hours walking through the wonderful gardens.

Ein Fest der Farben
feb. 2019
Es gibt Museen in Kapstadt, um die viel Lärm gemacht wird. Das Museum Irma Stern ist ein stiller wunderbarer Ort voller Farben mit einem üppigen Garten. Die Malereien Irma Stern hat dort gelebt. Sie war mit Max Pechstein befreundet und hatte ihre erste große Ausstellung in Berlin. Im ersten Stock werden wechselnde Ausstellungen gezeigt.

Irma Stern Museum - much more than a museum, an exceptional experience
des. 2018 • Venner
Irma Stern's old home and charming garden has an enchanting atmosphere with the most welcoming staff. A wonderful way to wind away a few hours. Having attended the launch of the Alice Goldin's new exhibition, celebrating this late artist's life and works (open mid Dec to late January), I would without hesitation recommend this tranquil haven to visitors and locals.

Lovely collection, excellent experience

We saw the Museum recommded in the paperback "Secret Cape Town" and took an Uber from our apmt in CBD to visit (about 60 SAR each way. We were delighted. Stern's paintings are beautifully displayed in her home and studio - her strong colors highlighted by the strong interior wall color. Her paintings are complemented by her collection of tribal sculptures and artifacts which she had collected in the early 1900s, largely from the Congo. The interplay between her paintings and the African pieces is fascinating. The upper floor featured a fascinating temporary exhibit of ceramics and paintings by Josef Lange-Grumfeld and Theo Ntuntwana,, white and black S/A artists working collaboratively. The staff was most helpful and accomodating. Highly recommend.

Incredible collection. Racist staff
feb. 2018 • Venner
As a fan of Irma Stern works this is an incredible collection and place to view works of varying size and medium. In particular I enjoyed her treatment of decorative objects very interesting, like painting on doors and windows.

But having said that, the staff were rude and racist (In my opinion) and will not return to this venue and rather resort to books for further viewing.

A delightful find in CapeTown
mar. 2017 • Par
A little gem set in the heart of CapeTown, Near the University, who are I believe, the custodians of this Museum.
The Museum is set in what was the house belonging to Irma Stern, and notable artist of some fame. Although an Art College graduate, I had I did not know her work.. She had studied in Germany at one of the famous art colleges, but not the Bauhaus, developing her own particular style. Luckily she cam back to South Africa before WW11.
The house had been given to her by her parents as a wedding gift (a marriage that didn't last long). Her many paintings adorn the walls of the various rooms. But she was also a collector of items that held interest for her and she collected on her many travels, and quite often into the Kalahari Desert which was one of her favourite places. These collections are all on show in the house, unfortunately they appear not to be catalogued in the many cases.
Although there appears to be no guided tour, we did ask lots of questions from one of the curators/administrators.
This was a real treat .

The museum is situated in Irma Stern's house. The gardens are beautiful and the collection of Stern's paintings is remarkable. A must if you visit Cape Town.

I loved the art work and enjoyed meeting the artist Tyrone Appollis who was setting up his exhibit of excellent paintings.
