Due to the exceptional acoustics in the atrium, the cathedral-like architecture exceeds high expectations for performances and cocktail events providing an awestriking first impression as guests enter the museum. For sleek and exclusive presentations, our Scheryn Collection Arena contains a built-in PA system that provides the necessary facilities for panel discussions and conferences alike.

Our Level 6 restaurant offers a cosmopolitan dining experience. The space is tailored for luxury dinners and cocktail events. The restaurant is run by Zeitz MOCAA Events who provide all catering services for private events in the museum. The venue also extends to a rooftop terrace that leaves our guests with breath-taking views of the V&A Waterfront and Table Mountain.
