Africa is where our ancestors evolved into human beings; it’s only fitting then that the bustling metropolis of Johannesburg, South Africa, is where the Origins Centre Museum has been established.

Conceptualised by a team of academics and designers from Wits University, the museum aims to provide visitors with a unique experience of Africa’s rich, complex heritage.

The Museum boasts an extensive collection of rock art from the Wits Rock Art Research Institute (RARI), affording visitors the opportunity to view the earliest images made by humans, found in South Africa.

Combining cutting-edge technology with the creative vision of some of South Africa’s foremost artists, the museum’s exhibits take visitors on an extraordinary voyage of discovery, which begins with the origins of humankind in Africa, and then moves through the development of art, symbolism, and technology on the continent.

The Origins Centre Museum restores the African continent to its rightful place in history – at the very beginning of mankind’s journey to humanity.

We are also home to a vast array of palaeoanthropological, archaeological and genetic materials charting the origins of humankind. These include ancient tools, artefacts of spiritual significance to early humans and examples of the region’s striking rock art.

Visitors to our museum can expect to take follow an 80 000-year path in search of the art and culture that has inspired human innovation, as well as delve into the fascinating beliefs of the ancient San, experiencing ritual such as hunting and the trance dance.

Audio guides come with the price of admission and are available in six languages – Zulu, Sotho, English, Afrikaans, French and German.

I was excited about the information in this museum, but found it to be presented in a fairly flat and not very engaging way.

I did find this musuem interesting but I enjoyed the caves more. The combined ticket was good value though and I would recommend visiting both as a day trip out of the city

I really enjoy this museum - the audio guides are detailed and informative, the exhibitions are well laid out and the current Walter Batiss show is just fascinating.

This is an exposition of early modern man, focusing on African artifacts and rock art of the last 175,000 years or so. Considerable attention is also given to the San people (also known as bushmen), effects of African migration and colonial occupation, etc. I found it very interesting, and worth the several hours we spent there.

The main area of the museum is dedicated to early African history and includes information about other hominid species as well. The fossil gallery seemed to be partially under construction, but (as a paleontologist myself) the displays available were very good and informative and didn't "dumb things down" for younger visitors. Definitely something adults can enjoy.

This is the place to visit if you are interested in the origins of mankind and pairs very well with a visit to Sterkfontein Caves as you can hold the skulls experience interactive exhibits. Good for teens and up but not for small children.. Good book shop.

This is really worth a visit. It illustrates how the Out of Africa theory of human evolution has proved to be correct. Very interesting since it is an area of study not well know outside of SA.

Going on a weekday, the museum was very quiet and we were the only ones there! The audio guide isn't that beneficial, but it's free! The videos, art, displays, everything was brilliant.
