Norval Foundation’s new membership option, Access Membership, needs to be purchased online or on site for R120 in order to enter the museum. This membership replaces daily admission and allows the member unlimited entries for one year. 

In order to gain entrance to the gallery spaces, two forms need to be completed: Daily COVID-19 questionnaire, and register, which can be completed on site at the Norval Foundation Shop.

• All staff and visitors are required to wear face masks.
• Visitor’s temperatures will be taken at the main gate. For visitor’s whose temperatures read over 37.6, entrance will not be permitted.
• All memberships will be sold at the Norval Foundation Shop counter, found on the left after the main entrance.
• All guests must sanitise before entering the shop. Sanitising stations will be set up around the facility.
• Visitors are required to complete the Daily COVID-19 questionnaire, and register.
• Temperatures will be taken again at the shop so that visitors can include the accurate temperature in their forms.
• Once forms are completed, visitors can purchase their memberships and time slots if they have not already been purchased online.
• Visitors make their way to the Atrium and must follow the one-way route, as indicated by the red line that leads through the galleries.

Getting Here and Parking

Street Address

Norval Foundation is an independent museum and registered non-profit organisation. As such, we receive no government grants or subsidies to aid our financial sustainability.

Car parking charges contribute significantly, not only to the running costs of Norval Foundation, but also to the preservation of art and culture in South Africa.

Our car parking system was partially sponsored by SKIDATA. In order to make parking easier and more eco-friendly, the system uses automatic number plate recognition when you drive in, which means you do not need to pay using a ticket. Instead, you make payment by using  your car’s number plate as a reference.

 Parking is free for the first 30 minutes | 30 minutes – 1.5 hours –  R10 | 1.5 hours –  5.5 – R20 |  5.5 – 7 hours – R50  | 6+ hours – R120.
