2016-05-25 06:00

THE National Museum in Bloemfontein will mark Africa Day on Wednesday (25/05), hosting celebratory and educational exhibitions which include the Africa flag and information on the symbols of the flag.

Provision has been made for members of the public to listen to the African anthem and also read the words.

There are also books and cultural artefacts from Africa.

This exhibition is in the foyer of the National Museum, 36 Aliwal Street, Bloemfontein, and can be viewed until 6 June.

Africa Day is the annual commemoration of the 1963 founding of the Organization of African Unity (OAU), presently known as the African Union (AU). The AU, comprised of 53 member states, has brought together the continent of Africa to collectively address the challenges it has faced, such as armed conflict, climate change and poverty.

Entrance to the museum to view the exhibitions is R5 for adults and R3 for children. The museum is open on weekdays from 08:00 to 17:00, on Saturdays from 10:00 to 17:00 and on Sundays from 12:00 to 17:00 .
