The National Cultural History Museum explores South Africa’s cultural diversity in various permanent and temporary exhibitions. Exhibitions include rock paintings and engravings of the San people; thousand year old Iron Age figurines from Schroda in the Limpopo Province (described as "the best known artifacts indicating ritual behaviour in the Early Iron Age"); the Art Gallery presents an overview of South African culture through time, using cultural objects, crafts, sculpture and paintings and an exhibition on Marabastad is a true example of a cosmopolitan and fully integrated rainbow nation before apartheid.

25 May is the annual commemoration of the 1963 founding of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), transformed since 2002 into the African Union (AU).  

The Ditsong National Museum of Cultural History is hosting the Africa Day Expo on 25 May 2012 in Pretoria.

The event is aimed at creating awareness of African affairs and culture among the international community, and will highlight trade, investment and tourism opportunities that exist within the continent.
