Zeitz MOCAA statement on COVID-19

Category Zeitz MOCAA Announcements
Published on 17 March 2020

In light of recent developments regarding the impact of COVID-19, Zeitz MOCAA is temporarily closed.

The health of our staff, guests, partners, and artists is a priority and we heed the call by South African President Cyril Ramaphosa for a nationwide lockdown.

We are currently evaluating the impact of these measures on our future exhibitions and programming and are working with artists and stakeholders to evaluate this changing environment.

We are continuously monitoring this situation and further updates will follow as soon as possible.

General admission tickets already booked for this period will either be fully refunded or accepted for entry when the museum re-opens.

Please note our team is still available online for any urgent enquiries.

Should you have any concerns with regards to tickets, programming, tours, or other events, please feel free to contact us on info@zeitzmocaa.museum.

The re-opening of the museum will continuously be assessed and evaluated.
