Johannesburg

Origins Centre

From artist Walter Oltmann's exceptional wire sculpture that greets you at the museum entrance to the design of each exhibit, this museum showcasing the origins of humankind is a must-see. The museum explores and celebrates the history of modern humans, tracing the emergence of humanity along an 80 000-year path to its African source. The exhibits include an extensive collection of rock art and paleo-anthropological, archaeological and genetic materials including ancient tools, and artefacts of spiritual significance to early humans. There's also a fascinating focus on San culture and rituals. The museum can be viewed in 90 minutes or a few hours. There's a gift store worth a visit for its book selection, among other items, and a cafe.
