                The Atrium is 33 metres high. A standard floor of a regular building is about 3 metres in height so the Atrium is about 10 floors high.

                The museum has nine floors of which seven are accessible to the public for exhibitions.

                How many gallery spaces are there?

                There are 80 conventional white-cube gallery spaces but more than 100 galleries when you include spaces such as the Centre for Performative Practice, the four-story dust house and the tunnels on the Level -1 basement level.

                Is the museum an accurate portrayal and representation of the African continent?

                This museum is at the start of a journey to participate in the conversation of what it means to be African, and then begin representing the continent. This will be a process over many years to fully understand and represent such a huge continent with so many traditions, languages and cultural groups. No collection can represent an entire continent but Zeitz MOCAA hopes its collection will make a significant impact on how Africa and the world view and has access to works of art from Africa and its Diaspora.
