Located next to the oldest synagogue in the country and the Holocaust Museum, the South African Jewish Museum has a grand, sand-colored wall that's unmissable from the street. Inside, interactive displays, audio-visual presentations, and artifacts take visitors back through the the roots of the Jewish people in South Africa. The primarily focus here is on the Jewish heritage in the country, but there's also a permanent Netsuke exhibit with around 200 miniature Japanese carvings.
